Drone Delivery Canada Corp. has announced that it has commenced the process to enter the USA market as a drone delivery operator.
The Company is in discussions with various potential US-based partners who have expressed positive interest in working with DDC to provide the Company’s proprietary systems to support drone delivery solutions for multiple vertical markets and use-cases in multiple geographies.
The Company has started the process to apply for an aircraft Type Design Approval for the Sparrow drone, with subsequent aircraft in DDC’s fleet to follow. Potential US-based partners would use the DDC delivery system to conduct for-hire drone delivery operations in the US under 14 CFR Part 135 rules. The aircraft Type Certification effort is an essential first step for enabling FAA approval of routine beyond visual line-of-sight delivery operations, which in-turn will provide significant opportunities for expansion. The Company is currently permitted to conduct limited delivery operations in the US using visual line of sight regulations under 14 CFR Part 107 rules.
“We have successfully proven and commercialized the business model and gained market traction in Canada, and it’s a natural progression to expand, in a controlled means, to international markets. We have active discussions underway in numerous international target markets and the United States is an obvious choice. We have flown successfully in the United States in a Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) pilot project, and now we are ready to start the process to enter the United States commercially. We are excited about the opportunities ahead of us in Canada and internationally and have a strong funnel of interested prospects,” said Michael Zahra, President & CEO of DDC.
