US drone delivery company Zing Drone Delivery has joined the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) BEYOND programme to develop and scale drone delivery operations. According to a Zing press release, Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT) has partnered with Zing to test package delivery operations through the FAA’s new BEYOND program. The program is focusing on expanding operations that are Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS), improving public perception of UAS, and quantifying the economic and societal impacts of these advanced operations.
Ian Annase, Founder and CEO of Zing stated “It is an honor to be a part of the exclusive group of partners in Kansas who will be testing and implementing these cutting edge operations. We are grateful for the opportunity to be one of the first to implement and scale package delivery use cases that are Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS). We are especially excited to be testing and implementing NASA’s Unmanned Traffic Management (UTM) system into our end-to-end drone delivery platform.”
