We've designed an extremely fuel-efficient autonomous airplane for same-day long-haul delivery, able to transport 350 kg at a distance of 2,500 km, reducing the cost of air cargo by 50-80%. Our goal is to build next-generation logistics networks for e-commerce, pharma and agriculture shipments.
Ultimately, we seek to operate а domestic service together with a local airline (complying with foreign ownership rules), and to let the airline sell these new routes to those smaller destinations to customers who currently use ground (e.g. e-commerce, agriculture, pharma), and who would be happy to get faster (and climate-controlled) transport than trucks, but for whom the current cost structure and network reach of airlines (destinations, timetables, cutoff times) is simply too prohibitive. Because of our fuel-efficient design, we are able to be profitable at even half the cost of current air cargo.
