Vancouver, BC, Oct. 02, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Draganfly Inc. (OTCQB: DFLYF) (CSE: DFLY) (FSE: 3U8) (“Draganfly” or the “Company”), an award-winning, industry-leading manufacturer within the commercial Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (“UAV”), Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (“RPAS”), and Unmanned Vehicle Systems (“UVS”) sectors, is pleased to announce Transport Canada’s recent acceptance of the Quantix’s safety assurance declaration for flight in advanced operations.
Draganfly is the exclusive worldwide commercial distributor of the Quantix Mapper RPAS, which is now the fifth aircraft in Draganfly’s fleet that meets Transport Canada’s safety assurance certification for RPAS advanced flight operations. Acceptance as an approved aircraft for advanced flight operations allows for more flexibility and flights in controlled airspace.
This approval permits the versatile Quantix Mapper UAV system, which is a fixed wing drone that takes off and lands like a multi-rotor and covers up to 400 acres per flight, to be utilized for advanced operations within controlled airspace.
“We are excited about the Quantix Mapper being accepted for advanced flight operations within Canada”, said Cory Baker, Draganfly’s Production Manager. “This safety assurance approval expands the operational effectiveness of the Quantix, making it a more viable solution for more users.”
The Quantix Mapper joins the portfolio of Draganfly’s North American-made multi-rotor RPAS platforms, such as the Draganflyer Commander, that have already been approved for advanced flights in Canada. This approval occurs as Draganfly continues to expand access to the Quantix Mapper through its direct-to-consumer efforts and its international dealer network.
