Domino’s Pizza has recently completed a delivery of pizza by drone in Auckland, New Zealand following a partnership with independent drone delivery startup, Flirtey, headquartered in Reno, Nevada. This wasn't the first unmanned delivery test for Domino's. Last year, Domino's tested ground-based driverless pizza delivery vehicles. This year, Domino's has taken pizza to the air with Flirtey.
Flirtey's delivery drones are designed and developed to keep contents safe, fresh and hot. KDE Direct is pleased to have its industrial drone components onboard Flirtey's drones in support of the vehicle's safety and performance.
Recently, Flirtey made the first FAA-sanctioned drone delivery in a rural area, dropping medical supplies in West Virginia, made the first ship-to-shore drone delivery, dropping medicine in New Jersey and made the first urban drone delivery, dropping food and drinks for 7-Eleven customers in Reno, Nevada.
Flirtey's delivery drone used to make the first FAA-sanctioned drone delivery is now on display at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum alongside some of aviation's most notable artifacts. Flirtey continues to take innovative steps in the realm of drone delivery, and KDE Direct is pleased to be onboard.
