Watch this Robin Riedel 8.30’ interview (link below) with co-founder and CEO of Dronamics cargo drone carrier, Svilen Rangelov. The company was founded eight years ago and is renowned for its Black Swan drone that can carry up to 350 kg in weight and travel for 2,500 kms. As it uses an engine for propulsion, gaining commercial certification should be easier.

The Dronamics website says, “The Black Swan can land on short and unpaved runways, enabling on-demand point-to-point flights and a speedy same-day delivery even to the most remote locations that would otherwise take days to reach over ground or sea.”

Rangelov says its cargo delivery “will be several times cheaper than existing air freight” at a cost of 50 percent or more less. First flights will occur later this year. He says the Black Swan is ideal for transporting products to more remote areas, where same day delivery over long distances could be the norm. The drone flies autonomously, can be monitored and managed remotely via satellite, where the whole system costs less than a sports car.

Robin Riedel, co-leads the ‘McKinsey Centre for Future Mobility’. This video is well worth watching.
