Carbonix Volanti is the first commercial Australian sub-25kg drone to be used in pilot certification for the new “powered lift” category.
In 2017, CASA created a new category for drones with both fixed-wing and multi-rotor capabilities, powered lift.
In February 2018, three Carbonix pilots flew the Carbonix Volanti and were certified as powered lift pilots in the sub-25kg category.
The Carbonix Volanti is the first commercial Australian-made sub-25kg powered lift drone to be used in this piloting certification.
In addition to this milestone, Carbonix received its operating certificate for drone operations using the Volanti.
Carbonix is about to commence its first internal application for BVLOS operations to conduct test flights and demonstrations for customers.
