Pyka, unveiled the latest addition to its lineup of purpose-built industrial aircraft: the Pelican Cargo.

The aircraft is a first in the Pyka roster, boasting "unprecedented payload", and a range of up to 200 miles. With its nose-loaded cargo system and sliding cargo tray, the Pelican can haul 400 pounds in 66 cubic feet of volume with minimal ground infrastructure. SpaceX has taken some small steps to prevent Ukraine MoD and military use of the network for long range command and control over drones, saying it falls outside the peaceful intentions of the service. Over the last year, Starlink has become one of the few reliable internet providers in the country, providing service to a wide range of Ukranian military and government units across the country - for communication. The National Aeronautic Association announced that the Pulitzer Electric Aircraft Race was to be postponed from May 2023 to an as-of-yet undetermined date later in the year. Introduced in 2021 at the 15th Annual Electric Aircraft Symposium as a one-thousand nautical-mile cross-country air race for zero-emission electric propulsion aircraft of all types, the race is intended to revive the tradition of the Pulitzer air races first held by the NAA in the early 1920s as the highlight of the Jazz Age’s popular National Air Races.
