Flirtey, a pioneer of the commercial drone delivery industry, has unveiled the Flirtey Eagle advanced drone delivery technology that is designed to safely get packages to customers in less than 10 minutes.
“We are thrilled to now reveal Flirtey’s industry-leading technology to the world,” said Matthew Sweeny, Flirtey founder and CEO. “We expect Flirtey’s advanced drone delivery system will become the industry standard in America.
“Flirtey’s technology has unique capabilities not available from any other aircraft manufacturer to enable first-movers to capture market share in their industries. Flirtey’s latest technology makes life-saving and commercial drone delivery to homes in the USA an imminent reality.”
The Flirtey Eagle safely and precisely delivers its contents by lowering a tether while the drone is suspended in the air. Once the package is delivered, it then retracts the tether.
Flirtey’s aircraft is controlled by its autonomous software platform, which has received FAA approval for the first multi-drone delivery operation in the USA, enabling a single remote pilot to simultaneously oversee 10 Flirtey drones.
The company has also unveiled the Flirtey’s Portal, a sophisticated take-off and landing platform that fits into one parking space, making its infrastructure easily scalable to the company’s partners for store-to-door delivery.
Flirtey is on course to conduct drone deliveries to US homes this year.
