Following the announcement of its collaboration with GE Aviation and the Hybrid Project, Auterion has more to share on its growth in the commercial drone space. Auterion is now working with Avy, a pioneering firm in the unmanned aircraft vehicle space that works on life-saving applications. Through its partnership, Auterion and Avy will continue to develop a vertical take off and landing drone for medical deliveries, public safety, sustainable logistics and wildlife conservation operations.

This partnership addresses is introducing the Avy Aera VTOL winged drone, for long-distance flights with modular payload capabilities and integrated avionics systems. 

The Avy Aera drone will leverage the complete Auterion software platform, including the operating system, Auterion Enterprise PX4, the Auterion Ground Station software for flight planning, and Auterion Insights for flight, safety, and compliance management. 

“The Avy Aera gives emergency services, mapping companies, and medical delivery enterprises a new tool to cover large areas in a short time. The integration around open standards makes it easy for operators to integrate the Avy Aera drones within their existing services,” said Kevin Sartori, Auterion co-founder. 

Designed to meet the latest EU regulations and with a range of over 100 km carrying cargo or sensor payloads up to 1,5 kg, the Avy Aera is equipped with onboard redundant communication links (RF, LTE, Satlink) and ADS-B transponder. Avy Aera is able to operate BVLOS and is compliant with the upcoming EASA regulations, by following the SORA framework. 

“By taking our technological performance one step further and focusing on operations, we’ve developed an aircraft that is ready for the strict aviation regulations and to operate over densely populated areas. The Avy Aera is quick, sleek, reliable, and equipped to disrupt the aviation ecosystem,” said Patrique Zaman, CEO of Avy.
