Reno and Flirtey Say Drone Delivery Tests Were a Success

The City of Reno and Flirtey ave successfully completed their first flights in the FAA’s Drone Integration Pilot Program, which is fast-tracking regulatory approvals for drone delivery.Conducting the first multi-drone delivery demonstration under the FAA’s IPP, a single Flirtey pilot simultaneously operated multiple Flirtey drones and simulated the delivery of automated external defibrillators in the presence of the FAA. They were conducted under a regulatory waiver allowing the operation of multiple small unmanned aircraft systems by one pilot, granted to Flirtey based on its leading safety systems and advanced technology. Flirtey Founder and CEO Matthew Sweeny calls it a major milestone toward scaling drone delivery nationwide.
