Great news this morning and nice pop in the stock

TORONTO, Jan. 15, 2018 /CNW/ - Drone Delivery Canada 'DDC or the Company' (TSX.V:FLT OTC:TAKOF) is pleased to announce that it's expanding its commercial testing program to the United States of America at the New York Griffiss International Airport UAS Test Site, located in Rome, New York in Q1, 2018.

The Company anticipates that the US Pilot Program will then run through the balance of the year. This new initiative expands DDCs testing program to include geographies within the United States utilizing its Sparrow X1000 drone which just recently achieved Compliant UAV Status with Transport Canada (December 2017). For testing, DDCs will utilize its own proprietary FLYTE management software that is designed to support semi-autonomous flight as well as BVLOS (beyond visual line of site) flights designed for commercial drone deliveries.

"We have very strong interest from multiple commercial customers in the USA that not only want to test our drone delivery platform in Canada, but also in their own Country as well. This pilot program will act as an extension of our primary Canadian initiatives and will expand our data collection ability. The FAA approved Rome, N.Y. site was made available to us by the progressive initiatives of the FAA and provides an ideal testing environment to achieve our customers' requests," commented Tony Di Benedetto, CEO. "While collectively working with our key Canadian stakeholders and the invaluable support of Transport Canada and the Canadian Federal Government which has allowed us to progress to this point, we now look to put Canada on the forefront of commercial drone delivery technology on a global stage with our first expansion occurring south of the border," added Di Benedetto.

The Griffiss International Airport unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) test site in Rome, N.Y., is a USA Department of Transportation's Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) approved facility designated to conduct research vital to integrating UAS into the national airspace system (NAS). The site is the fifth of six test sites that are operational in the U.S.

The US testing initiatives will complement DDC's extensive Canadian testing program scheduled for 2018, which will include testing its Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) capabilities at the Transport Canada approved UAS Centre of Excellence located in Alma, Quebec.

DRONE DELIVERY CANADA ACHIEVES COMPLIANT UAV STATUS WITH TRANSPORT CANADA FOR ITS SPARROW CARGO DELIVERY DRONE

Transport Canada has accepted Drone Delivery Canada Corp.'s declaration of compliance for the X1000 Sparrow cargo delivery drone. This unmanned aircraft system (UAS) is now compliant with the Transport Canada UAS standard.

The Sparrow is the first cargo delivery drone of its kind to be accepted under the Transport Canada compliant UAS program.

A compliant UAS is the first of three regulatory components to the Transport Canada-compliant UAS operator program and mandatory for a compliant UAS operator special flight operations certificate (SFOC). This milestone allows Drone Delivery Canada to move forward to becoming a compliant UAS operator with the anticipation for the balance of the other two of three approvals in early Q1 2018. Drone Delivery Canada has submitted the required documentation and is confident of its approval in the remaining steps.

"Achieving compliant UAV status is the first of three very critical steps in Drone Delivery Canada achieving its compliant operator status certificate. We anticipate obtaining the balance of the approvals in early Q1 2018," commented Tony Di Benedetto, chief executive officer. "We are very thankful to the efforts of the Canadian government and Transport Canada in creating a favourable environment to grow innovative technology and position Canada as a leader in commercial drone delivery technology on a global scale."

Achieving compliant UAS operator status is also the first requirement for being permitted to conduct beyond-visual-line-of-sight operations. This achievement moves Drone Delivery Canada to the forefront to conduct safe and effective drone deliveries in Canada. During recent research and development flights, the X1000 (Sparrow) has demonstrated a history of safe operation in some of the harshest environmental conditions in Canada's North.

Drone Delivery Canada appreciates the efforts of Transport Canada in creating a favourable environment to grow innovative technology.

DRONE DELIVERY CANADA FLIES IN CANADIAN NORTHERN COMMUNITIES OF MOOSE FACTORY AND MOOSONEE, ONTARIO

Drone Delivery Canada Corp. was granted permission from Transport Canada to test its drone delivery technology in the northern regions of Canada. DDC tested its drone delivery platform in the Moose Factory and Moosonee communities, where it completed a series of successful flights comprising distances of up to 2.12 kilometres, all while maintaining visual contact.

Drone Delivery Canada's Drones operated in Class E airspace, which has hundreds of daily helicopter and aircraft flights taking place. While flying autonomously, Drone Delivery Canada seamlessly integrated into this busy airspace.

For these tests, Drone Delivery Canada's OCC (operations control centre) co-ordinated these flights with NAV Canada and Timmins FSS (flight service station) operating in VFR (visual flight rules). Multiple flights were made, all achieving 100-per-cent success rates while flying in some of Canada's most extreme weather conditions that included strong winds, snow and cold temperatures.

"We are extremely pleased with our test flights in the Moose Factory and Moosonee communities," commented Tony Di Benedetto, chief executive officer of Drone Delivery Canada. "I would like to thank all stakeholders, including the communities, the regulators, the local aviation community and Drone Delivery Canada's technical team, to allow this co-ordinated effort to take place and achieve very positive results for all. Our technology has shown positive results through these initial flights to be a viable infrastructure solution for Canada's North to help increase access and reduce logistics costs," added Mr. Di Benedetto.

Drone Delivery Canada will work under Transport Canada's guidance to continue to advance testing and development throughout the Canadian geography, including Moose Factory and Moosonee communities.

DRONE DELIVERY CANADA AND WOLSELEY CANADA SIGN AGREEMENT FOR DRONE DELIVERY DEVELOPMENT

Drone Delivery Canada Corp. has signed an agreement with Wolseley Canada Inc. to collaborate on the potential implementation of a drone delivery solution to expand Wolseley Canada's distribution capabilities.

Using Drone Delivery Canada's logistics platform, the development, prototyping and testing will be focused on a customized depot-to-depot solution, as well as a depot-to-customer solution, in Wolseley Canada's supply chain.

If the testing and development are successful to the satisfaction of both parties, the parties intend to proceed with good-faith negotiations of a definitive agreement once applicable government legislation is enacted (estimated in fourth quarter 2017 to first quarter 2018). Drone Delivery Canada shall be responsible for its own costs and expenses with respect to the testing and the development of the drone delivery logistics platform solution.

"We believe that we are the only drone delivery company in Canada to successfully achieve beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) testing and are very pleased to announce this agreement with Wolseley Canada, one of the leading plumbing and HVAC/R [heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration] distributors in Canada. As drone payloads increase, we think drone deliveries will radically improve on-time delivery," said Tony Di Benedetto, chief executive officer of Drone Delivery Canada.

Thursday October 12 2017 - In the News

The Globe and Mail reports in its Thursday edition that Macquarie analyst Jiang Zhang commenced coverage of Drone Delivery Canada (70 cents) with an "outperform" rating. The Globe's David Leeder writes in the Eye On Equities column that Mr. Zhang targets the shares at $1. Mr. Zhang says in a note: "The evolution of drone delivery in Canada is inevitable as this theme is shaping up globally. We note that drone delivery is gaining traction in Africa, notably in Rwanda, where drones deliver crucial medical supplies and parcels over rugged terrains and areas that lack sufficient infrastructure. In China, e-commerce companies such as Alibaba and JD are already using drones for parcel delivery to rural areas. While drone delivery has been slow to take off in North America due to regulatory hurdles, the U.S. and Canadian governments are clearly interested in leveraging drone technology to drive greater efficiency. In Canada particularly, we think that the regulatory environment is improving as Ottawa is looking for ways to drive technology innovation given the country's shrinking labour force, outsized landmass and a resource-oriented economy. ... DDC is well-positioned for this theme due to its early-mover advantage."
