Tackling the challenges for remote logistics such as disruption from weather.
Working with the local community to understand what they need moved most, and when.
Working with ISSG to compliment their existing logistics operations.

In June 2020 Flylogix entered into a 2-year development agreement with the Isles of Scilly Steamship Group.  The partnership will develop a regular unmanned freight service between Lands End Airport and the Scilly Isles which tackles some of the unique challenges of remote area logistics.

In December, the team delivered a successful demonstration flight from Lands End Airport to St Mary’s Airport and back.  This was an industry first for unmanned aviation delivering between two commercial airports.  The service carried a box of NHS supplies on its outbound routing and returned with an array of local produce including gin and fresh flowers.

A routine service will be established later in 2021 to further develop this exciting new capability.

Stuart Reid, Chief Executive of ISSG, said

“We’ve shown that a drone freight service is not only technically feasible but that there is demand for its potential to deliver time-sensitive and high value items for the island community”.

He added that the “aircraft have 98% fewer emissions than a manned equivalent”.
