SpeedBird Aero and ParaZero have partnered to implement ParaZero’s SafeAir autonomous parachute recovery systems to SpeedBird’s new drone fleet, which could make beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) drone operations safer and the companies could extend drone deliveries to considerably more places.
SpeedBird achieved BVLOS certification for its delivery drone and received Brazil’s first drone delivery approval in 2020. Since then, the company has completed over 700 BVLOS flights including the delivery of parcels over shopping malls.
ParaZero’s SafeAir autonomous parachute recovery system helps the drone to detect and avoid risks, and in the case of system failure, the autonomous parachute system prevents the drone from free-falling.
With the integration of ParaZero’s SafeAir, SpeedBird Aero’s drone deliveries can become safer and the companies can implement BVLOS drone deliveries in urban environments as well.
