Drone Delivery Canada (DDC) has received approval from Transport Canada to start testing a heavy lifting drone in Canadian air space.
On Aug. 3, the company announced Transport Canada has granted it a Special Flight Operations Certificate to test its Robin X1400 cargo delivery drone.
The Robin is capable of carrying up to 25 pounds of payload for up to 60 kilometres. DDC said it would be outfitted with a “dual payload deployment system, which would allow both static and tethered cargo deployments.”
With tethered cargo, the drone never lands, but deploys its payload by tether while hovered above at a height of 100 feet, the company said.
