Drone Delivery. based in Toronto, Ontario focuses on designing, developing and implementing a commercially viable drone delivery system within the Canadian geography.
This is a disruptive technology and it's time has come. I expect this will be very lucrative to early innovators like Drone Delivery.
I visited their site to see what they were working on and had a lengthy discussion with management back in June. The management team has a very good track record of bringing technologies up to a commercial status and selling it off for multiple returns for their shareholders and I believe they will do it again with Drone Delivery Canada.
On Oct 4th 2016 FLT a special flight operations certificate from Transport Canada. The certificate now allows Drone Delivery Canada the ability to advance its drone delivery technology and accelerated testing in the Canadian skies, beginning with Southern Ontario.

Not only are we the first and only drone logistics company in Canada, we now have just obtained a special flight operations certificate from Transport Canada allowing us to test fly with potential customers. This is a Drone Delivery Canada milestone which I am pleased to report we achieved six months ahead of schedule. We have large customer demand, and we are seeing vastly increased market acceptance of our business moving us closer to our commercial goals," commented Tony Di Benedetto, chief executive officer of Drone Delivery Canada.
On Oct. 3, 2016, Transport Canada, Canada's federal regulatory body that is responsible for transportation policies and programs in Canada, granted Drone Delivery Canada its first official flight certificate to advance its outdoor testing within Southern Ontario.
Drone Delivery Canada will work alongside Transport Canada, which will provide oversight on advanced testing at a specific test site within the Southern Ontario geography.
"Our outdoor flight testing will be conducted at various altitudes to a maximum of 300 feet above ground level with flight speeds not to exceed 150 kilometres per hour. Our customers and partnerships have indicated their desire for payloads and distances, which we expect to exceed as we move closer to commercialization having now obtained our first special flight operations certificate from Transport Canada," stated Paul Di Benedetto, chief technology officer at Drone Delivery Canada.
The special flights operations certificate is the first step in the formal process working with Transport Canada in receiving its operator status. Drone Delivery Canada looks to first deploy services in Northern Canada within remote communities where demand and need are highest.
