FIXAR acquires Canadian approval for BVLOS operations
Transport Canada has granted RPV Aviation a Special Flight Operating Certificate (SFOC) to fly BVLOS (beyond the visual line of sight of the drone’s pilot) with FIXAR 007 fixed-wing VTOL (vertical take-off and landing).
FIXAR launches manufacturing in North America with Volatus in $1M deal
Volatus Aerospace, a fast-growing integrated provider of unmanned aircraft and drone services, will begin the manufacture of up to 1,200 units of the innovative FIXAR VTOL drone per year at its new facility at the Lake Simcoe Regional Airport in Oro, Ontario.
Revolutionary drone approved form advanced flights in Canada
Most VTOL drones with wings require that the angle of the motors change when transitioning from vertical to horizontal flight. FIXAR uses a patented Fixed Angle Rotor system, meaning fewer moving parts or potential points of failure. Transitions are seamless, and all motors are in use throughout missions. Unlike designs that shut down motors during forward flight, the FIXAR has no “dead weight.”
