Drone Delivery Canada (DDC) has commenced testing of its newest cargo delivery UAS, the Falcon, following approvals from Transport Canada, the company announced on 30 January.

The tests are being carried out in Southern Ontario, Canada.

With a wingspan of 12ft, the Falcon can carry up to 50lbs of cargo and travel up to 60km at a speed of 50km/hr. The multi-package payload compartment has been designed to carry approximately five cubic feet of cargo in all weathers.

Tony Di Benedetto, CEO, DDC, said: ‘In response to market demand driven by the burgeoning e-commerce industry, our engineering team was given the task of building out our fleet of cargo drones to address the need for a multi-package payload compartment solution which is applicable in many different geographies.  

‘The Falcon is the newest edition to DDC's fleet and meets this particular niche which is being requested by DDC's customers.’
