Project Wing is a drone delivery company started by Alphabet, Google’s parent company. In 2017 they launched a delivery program in Australia that carried burritos and other food to remote regions. Wing is leading the charge on U.S. drone deliveries, gaining approval from the FAA as a certified air carrier and partnering with FedEx and Walgreens to deliver goods to U.S. homes.
Wing provides aircrafts that are custom-designed to deliver packages safely, reliably, and efficiently.
The company's UAS traffic management system (UTM) plans the best route, taking into account safety, efficiency, and aviation regulation. Wing’s delivery drone is one of the safest ways to transport for items. The company's aircraft have flown tens of thousands of flights, and has been delivering everyday goods to doorsteps, driveways, and backyards. Wing complies with all regulations in each area it operate, and adheres to an extremely rigorous safety framework. Wing has multiple levels of redundancy built into our aircraft and operations, and these have been thoroughly tested throughout the 70,000 test flights we’ve conducted.
Wing has designed a drone that can pick up a package, fly to a designated site, hover over the delivery area, and gently lower the package to the ground at a precise location. The company's drones map a safe route to a designated location using our UAS traffic management system (UTM). The UTM plans a flight path from take-off to landing, avoiding other Wing drones and obstacles.
