Drone Delivery Canada Integrates into Controlled Airspace in Moosonee and Moose Factory in Beyond Visual Line of Sight Pilot Project

Drone Delivery Canada ‘DDC or the Company’ (TSX.V:FLTOTC: TAKOF), is pleased to announce that the Company conducted numerous successful drone delivery test flights in the communities of Moosonee and Moose Factory, Ontario as part of DDC’s Beyond Visual Line-of-Sight (BVLOS) Pilot Project ‘BVLOS Pilot Project.’ Operations under the BVLOS Pilot Project were approved by both Transport Canada and NAV CANADA and were flown in the Class E controlled airspace surrounding the Moosonee airport.

DDC’s BVLOS Pilot Project commenced on September 17, 2018 and was completed on September 28, 2018. The Pilot Project flight operations were conducted in both day time and evenings on a set of approved flight paths. Throughout the Pilot Project, DDC worked closely with Transport Canada and NAV CANADA to ensure safety while also demonstrating the efficiency and efficacy of its Sparrow drone as well as its proprietary FLYTE management system. DDC is pleased to report that no flight safety incidents occurred, and each mission was completed successfully.

DDC’s Sparrow X1000 cargo drone and DDC’s proprietary FLYTE management system successfully delivered medical supplies, dry blood spots kits for HIV, Hepatitis C and general blood chemistry testing, as well as food, automotive parts and general parcels for many of DDC’s customers which were present for the Pilot Project. These flights were conducted both to and from Moosonee and Moose Factory.

It is noteworthy that Drone Delivery Canada was approved to conduct its BVLOS Pilot Project in controlled airspace and while communicating on standard aviation frequencies in accordance with the Canadian Aviation Regulations. These are the same frequencies and communications protocols used for general aviation and commercial aircraft. Under the BVLOS Pilot Project, DDC was assigned the call sign “Sparrow 1”.

“We achieved our mission flawlessly,” commented Paul Di Benedetto, CTO. “On behalf of the Company I would like to sincerely and publicly thank the staff from the Transport Canada RPAS Task Force, NAV CANADA, The Moose Cree First Nation, the community of Moosonee, the MoCreebec community and all the team at DDC for the tireless effort put forth. The collaboration by all parties provided critical data which will set the foundation for success and further solidify the great working relationship between Government and DDC.”

“Living in Canada’s north comes with challenges. The community was extremely excited to see the benefits of DDC’s drone delivery solution as a means to help mitigate our daily challenges, improve our logistics, lower our costs and bring employment to our region. We are very happy to be working with Drone Delivery Canada and see the immense benefit to our community and to other communities in the region,” commented Stan Kapashesit, Director of Economic Development Moose Cree First Nation.

In Canada, there are approximately one thousand remote communities, and almost all face similar infrastructure and logistics challenges that contribute to a high cost of living. DDC looks to provide a cost effective and highly efficient logistic solution to these communities to improve lives and to create jobs in Canada’s north all while reducing costs.

“We are very thankful to the authorities for approving our flight path to connect these communities,” commented Tony Di Benedetto, CEO of Drone Delivery Canada. “It is not an easy feat at all to achieve what we have accomplished. DDC has created an innovative logistic solution allowing a drone to deliver parcels in non-segregated Canadian airspace. As a starting point we intend on targeting outlying communities which experience on-going and difficult infrastructure challenges. To address these challenges, in the not so distant future we will work closely with Transport Canada and NAV CANADA in order to deploy our technology and establish ‘railways in the sky’ where our drones can integrate into existing Canadian airspace to connect communities to one another and provide efficient and cost-effective means of delivery.”

DDC will be providing a video detailing the Pilot Project to shareholders and interested parties and anticipates a release date in approximately 10 days time.

DR1 Racing, the global leader in professional drone racing, has unveiled the new Pro Class racing drone for the league’s upcoming 2018 season of the DHL Champions Series fueled by Mountain Dew. Measuring over 4 times larger than previous racing drones, the giant Pro Class drones will allow fans to follow the action better than ever before as they reach speeds over 100 MPH in just over one second.

“To grow the sport of drone racing, the size of the racing drones themselves needed to become larger,” said Brad Foxhoven, CEO and Founder of DR1 Racing. “This new addition to the Champions Series redefines the sport of drone racing, and reinforces DR1 Racing’s commitment to innovation in our emerging sport.”

DR1 Racing looks to repeat last year’s success, where the Champions Series finals were the most watched drone racing event in the world with record ratings on CBS, Eurosport, beIN Sports, and Fox Sports Asia.

Demonstrating further commitment to DR1, DHL has expanded the company’s title sponsorship of the Champions Series on into the 2019 season. In addition to DHL, Mountain Dew returns for a third year as the exclusive beverage partner of DR1 Racing, as well as the presenting sponsor for Champions Series. The series will continue to be named the DHL Champions Series fueled by Mountain Dew.

“With this continued collaboration, DHL is supporting a thrilling sport that is not only growing rapidly around the world, but also attracting completely new stakeholder groups and delivering top entertainment value,” says Dirk Ude, Head of Global DHL Advertising. “Our engagement is based on a perfect brand fit, as DHL and DR1 Racing share the same attributes such as performance, speed, and precision.”

The season lifts off on October 4th on beIN Sports in the US, and on the 25th of October in Europe on Eurosport.  For more detailed broadcast schedule check out www.DR1Racing.tv for more information.
