Barry Koperberg: Speaking at the Helitech Expo

Wings For Aid

A humanitarian internet - using cargo drone aircraft

Why do some of us receive parcels we need within 24 hours, and others do not? This seminar addresses a key issue in humanitarian logistics: the ‘last mile’ of 50-250km. Barry Koperberg, founder and GM of Wings For Aid, outlines how drone technology, partnership and persistence power up a ‘humanitarian internet’ for package delivery. In action shortly: a 650kg aircraft in a BVLOS circuit, to drop 20kg self-landing boxes. Just where they are most needed.
