Back partners have agreed to host Dronamics’ Black Swan drones, facilitating same-day delivery services and providing access to more than six million people located within a one-hour drive of these airports. While the Mannheim airport serves as the fifth droneport location in Germany, the UAS Denmark Test Center is Dronamics’ very first partner in Denmark.
With these new collaborations, Dronamics has now expanded its droneport network to 42 locations in 14 European countries. The Bulgarian company aims to eventually create a global network of droneports, along with a ground control station that can guide all the cargo drones.
Dronamics’ Black Swan cargo drone has a wingspan of 52 ft (16 m) and can carry a payload of up to 770 lb (350 kg) over a distance of 1,553 miles (2,500 km). The aircraft can land on short and unpaved runways that are just 1,312 ft (400 m) long and can fly at altitudes of up to 22,000 ft (6,700 m). It can reach a top speed of 125 mph (200 kph).
The Bulgarian drone developer has scheduled the first commercial flights of the Black Swan for this year, between Malta and Italy.
