Great news on Drone tonite

TORONTO, Oct. 2, 2018 /PRNewswire/ - Drone Delivery Canada 'DDC or the Company' (TSX.V:FLT OTC:TAKOF), is pleased to announce that the Company conducted numerous successful drone delivery test flights in the communities of Moosonee and Moose Factory, Ontario as part of DDC's Beyond Visual Line-of-Sight (BVLOS) Pilot Project 'BVLOS Pilot Project.' Operations under the BVLOS Pilot Project were approved by both Transport Canada and NAV CANADA and were flown in the Class E controlled airspace surrounding the Moosonee airport.

DDC's BVLOS Pilot Project commenced on September 17, 2018 and was completed on September 28, 2018. The Pilot Project flight operations were conducted in both day time and evenings on a set of approved flight paths. Throughout the Pilot Project, DDC worked closely with Transport Canada and NAV CANADA to ensure safety while also demonstrating the efficiency and efficacy of its Sparrow drone as well as its proprietary FLYTE management system. DDC is pleased to report that no flight safety incidents occurred, and each mission was completed successfully.

DDC's Sparrow X1000 cargo drone and DDC's proprietary FLYTE management system successfully delivered medical supplies, dry blood spots kits for HIV, Hepatitis C and general blood chemistry testing, as well as food, automotive parts and general parcels for many of DDC's customers which were present for the Pilot Project. These flights were conducted both to and from Moosonee and Moose Factory.

It is noteworthy that Drone Delivery Canada was approved to conduct its BVLOS Pilot Project in controlled airspace and while communicating on standard aviation frequencies in accordance with the Canadian Aviation Regulations. These are the same frequencies and communications protocols used for general aviation and commercial aircraft. Under the BVLOS Pilot Project, DDC was assigned the call sign "Sparrow 1".

"We achieved our mission flawlessly," commented Paul Di Benedetto, CTO. "On behalf of the Company I would like to sincerely and publicly thank the staff from the Transport Canada RPAS Task Force, NAV CANADA, The Moose Cree First Nation, the community of Moosonee, the MoCreebec community and all the team at DDC for the tireless effort put forth. The collaboration by all parties provided critical data which will set the foundation for success and further solidify the great working relationship between Government and DDC."

"Living in Canada's north comes with challenges. The community was extremely excited to see the benefits of DDC's drone delivery solution as a means to help mitigate our daily challenges, improve our logistics, lower our costs and bring employment to our region. We are very happy to be working with Drone Delivery Canada and see the immense benefit to our community and to other communities in the region," commented Stan Kapashesit, Director of Economic Development Moose Cree First Nation.

In Canada, there are approximately one thousand remote communities, and almost all face similar infrastructure and logistics challenges that contribute to a high cost of living. DDC looks to provide a cost effective and highly efficient logistic solution to these communities to improve lives and to create jobs in Canada's north all while reducing costs.

"We are very thankful to the authorities for approving our flight path to connect these communities," commented Tony Di Benedetto, CEO of Drone Delivery Canada. "It is not an easy feat at all to achieve what we have accomplished. DDC has created an innovative logistic solution allowing a drone to deliver parcels in non-segregated Canadian airspace. As a starting point we intend on targeting outlying communities which experience on-going and difficult infrastructure challenges. To address these challenges, in the not so distant future we will work closely with Transport Canada and NAV CANADA in order to deploy our technology and establish 'railways in the sky' where our drones can integrate into existing Canadian airspace to connect communities to one another and provide efficient and cost-effective means of delivery."

DDC will be providing a video detailing the Pilot Project to shareholders and interested parties and anticipates a release date in approximately 10 days time.

Wednesday April 18 2018 - In the News

The Globe and Mail reports in its Wednesday, April 18, edition that investing in disruptive technology stocks can be enticing because of their huge profit potential, but it is not easy to pick winners. The Globe's Shirley Won writes that Redwood Asset Management manager Greg Taylor recommends buying Drone Delivery Canada ($1.47). It has a 52-week trading range of 88 cents to $2.26. Drone Delivery's pilot project to fly supplies between the Northern Ontario communities of Moosonee and Moose Factory is an important step toward developing a commercial delivery service using unmanned aerial vehicles, says Mr. Taylor. The Toronto-based company recently obtained federal approval to fly its drones without having to be in the line of sight of a ground-based operator. The drone technology is disruptive to traditional shipping methods, including helicopters and couriers, and could open new markets in northern communities that have "super high cost of goods," Mr. Taylor notes. The company does not have direct rivals, but "Amazon will probably be a longer-term competitor," says Mr. Taylor. He says Drone Delivery will have revenue this year but will not be profitable yet. Mr. Taylor says, "You are buying into the future."

NEXT GENERATION HEAVY LIFTING DRONE

TORONTO, March 21, 2018 /CNW/ - Drone Delivery Canada 'DDC or the Company' (TSX.V:FLT OTC:TAKOF), is pleased to announce that it has commenced development of its newest cargo delivery drone, 'The Condor' with a lifting capability estimated at 400 pounds of payload.

"Our engineering team is focused on building out our fleet to provide drones capable of addressing a wide range of client requirements in different geographies. The Condor will be our first delivery drone that offers our customers a platform for greater capacities of bulk shipments" commented Tony Di Benedetto, CEO. "We continue to push the envelope advancing our fleets capabilities to meet and exceed client requirements in Northern Canada and elsewhere around the world."

The Condor cargo delivery drone is being engineered to provide payload capacities of up to 400lbs and designed to fly approximately 150km. The Condor boasts a considerably larger payload compartment compared to both the Raven and Sparrow. The Sparrow obtained its Declaration of Compliance accepted by Transport Canada in December 2017. The Condor looks to accept pallet size payload shipments, ideal for transporting bulk cargo, both in Canada and abroad.

Most importantly, The Condor will be fully integrated with the proprietary DDC FLYTE™ management system which has been extensively tested in the Canadian geography and just recently also in the United States of America at the Griffiss International Airport in Rome, New York.

DDC looks to commence testing the Condor at its testing facilities in late 2018 with multiple customers, both new and existing.
