Airborne-Unmanned 03.31.20: BVLOS in Canada, UPS Flight Forward, Continental

Also: ANN’s April 1st Episode, Parrot And DroneLogbook, ‘Pandemic Drone’, AVIUS Air Delivery

MVT Geo-solutions and Iris Automation have been granted the first BVLOS Special Flight Operations Certificate (SFOC) by Transport Canada using only onboard Detect-and-Avoid (DAA).

The approval was granted based on the utilization of Iris Automation’s DAA system, called Casia, which provides commercial drones with automated collision avoidance maneuvers. The waiver permits flights within the UAS Center of Excellence’s controlled airspace Remotely Piloted Aircraft System (RPAS) test range in Alma, Quebec. This is the first BVLOS flight at the location leveraging only onboard DAA for air risk mitigation, and does not require ground-based observers or radar. UPS Flight Forward (UPSFF) will collaborate with German drone-maker Wingcopter to develop a next generation of package delivery drones. As part of this collaboration – UPSFF’s first new relationship with a drone manufacturer since its formation – both companies will work toward earning regulatory certification for a Wingcopter unmanned aircraft to make commercial delivery flights in the United States. Continental Aerospace Technologies has named  Robert J. Stoppek as its new Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and president. Stoppek was formerly the CEO for Waukesha Engine, part of the former GE Distributed Power business prior to joining Continental. In October of 2019, Continental appointed Michael Skolnik as the Interim CEO in addition to his duties as Chief Operating Officer (COO). As the company transitions the leadership roles to Stoppek, Skolnik and other senior leadership are eager to work together to shape the future of Continental.
