Drone Delivery Canada (DDC) has announced the completion of its Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) trials in Alma, Quebec.

As part of the first phase of its Remote Communities Project, DDC ran a series of tests in Alma between August 13th and August 17th. Flights were conducted in both day and night under the supervision of Transport Canada and the National Research Council.

“I would like to congratulate our entire team at DDC for achieving another significant milestone. Many thanks to Transport Canada and the National Research Council for attending these trials and supporting our initiatives. Alma was yet another key step in advancing the capabilities of our systems,” said Paul Di Benedetto, DDC CTO, in a press statement.

“With the Alma trials completed, we look next to our participation in the Transport Canada BVLOS Pilot Project, in Moosonee and Moose Factory, as we continue to move towards commercialization in Canada, and abroad.”

DDC will conduct further BVLOS tests next month in Moosonee and Moose Factory in September 2018.

The company says it will begin commercializing its technology once it has finished developing all of its drone delivery systems.
