Flirtey Wins a New Patent Critical to the Safety of Drone Delivery

The pioneer of the commercial drone delivery industry, Flirtey, has quite recently won a new patent critical to the safety of drone delivery. The newly granted patent presents the safety-enhancing technologies like landing a drone safely in case of failure with the help of a parachute, which steers the drone towards a safe location.

The Founder and CEO at Flirtey, Matthew Sweeny, said that the company is indeed thrilled to receive another patent, which is vital to the safety of drone delivery. The US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) granted the patent to Flirtey recently when it was the time to celebrate the Fifth Anniversary of the

‘Kitty Hawk Moment’ on 17th July 2020. The day marks Flirtey’s first drone delivery on the US soil, in Wise County, Virginia, on 17th July 2015.

Previously, Flirtey had unveiled its next-generation delivery drone, known as Flirtey Eagle, at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. Now, the company is actively pursuing a Type Certificate for the Flirtey Eagle.

Flirtey’s unique technology is protected by even more than 1,000 issued and pending Patent Claims in the US and other nations across the globe as well.

As an aerospace technology company, Flirtey specializes in providing full-stack drone delivery technology solutions. The company has a mission of saving lives and improving the lifestyle by making delivery instant for everyone worldwide. In 2015, the company first made history by conducting the first-ever FAA-approved drone delivery. In the following years, Flirtey successfully proceeded towards becoming the first unmanned aircraft system company, capable of performing an autonomous drone delivery to a home, and pioneering an AED drone delivery service in the US. The company has efficiently worked alongside NASA, the City of Reno, emergency medical services provider REMSA, Johns Hopkins University of Medicine, and several other commercial partners to come up with the fastest and most effective customer-centric logistics technology around the world.
