Flirtey, a US-based developer of commercial drone delivery systems, has announced its completion of the technology needed to certify and expand US production of its drone delivery system for last-mile delivery.
The aircraft designer and manufacturer’s technology includes the Flirtey Eagle, a drone that conducts precision delivery to homes and businesses; the Flirtey Portal, a take-off and landing platform that conducts scalable operations from storefronts; and its autonomous software platform that conducts autonomous flight operations.
Flirtey claims that its technology solves the last-mile delivery problem with faster, lower-cost, more convenient delivery, which takes vehicles off the roads, reduces CO2 emissions and increases the overall safety of the transport system. The company hopes that its technology will enable small and large businesses to operate their own logistics by providing store-to-door drone delivery to their customers.
“Flirtey is certifying and expanding US production of delivery drones to meet growing demand. Flirtey’s technology enables businesses to operate their own logistics by providing store-to-door drone delivery to customers. Businesses who use Flirtey’s best-in-class technology for last-mile drone delivery become first movers to unlock lower delivery costs and billions in potential new revenue. Flirtey is now taking pre-orders for drone delivery systems,” said Flirtey founder and CEO Matthew Sweeny.
Flirtey says it is focused on completing the FAA’s certification process, in addition to scaling its operations in New Zealand (where the company’s technology already has regulatory certification) and expanding US production of delivery drones to meet growing demand.
