Drones Delivering Healthcare
Cartography, aerial photography, delivering humanitarian supplies—professional drone applications are constantly developing. In remote villages in Africa, as well as in the crowded streets of Western cities, drones are now saving lives by transporting equipment, medicines, and delivering medical samples.
« Drone transport will improve speed of deliveries at a lower cost, enhance access to care and create healthier communities. »
Donald Gintzig, CEO of WakeMed
At ATR, which has been involved for many years in a partnership with Aviation Sans Frontières delivering medicines in Africa and transporting young patients in particular, we can only welcome the development of drone services for health and humanitarian applications. Against this backdrop of new air mobility, the issues of flight authorisations, internal security and low-altitude air traffic management remain to be resolved—a major obstacle to the development of such solutions in many countries.
