The Black Swan aircraft is able to carry up to 350kg of cargo at a distance of up to 2,500km at up to 80% lower cost than any other aircraft. It can operate from runways as short as 400 meters, unpaved, and will enable DRONAMICS to serve customers in even the smallest and most remote communities.
“For more than 100 years people have designed airplanes for humans first, meaning they were never really optimized for cargo, and in fact, they’re quite inefficient,” said Konstantin Rangelov, co-founder and CTO, DRONAMICS. “By being extremely focused solely on carrying cargo, we were able to develop an aircraft that is able to do the job at up to 80% lower cost than any other airplane, meaning we can bring the benefits of aviation to billions of people around the world who do not get regular air service.”
The company wants to eliminate the need to choose between low-cost road freight, that can take days to deliver, or fast air freight that is expensive.
“The unveiling of the Black Swan represents a critical milestone in the company’s mission to enable same-day shipping for everyone everywhere,” said Svilen Rangelov, Co-Founder & CEO of DRONAMICS. “The years of hard work are paying off and as soon as we’re done with our extensive test program and obtain certification in 2022 we are going to begin commercial operations, serving customers in Europe and beyond years ahead of everyone else…”
