Valmie Resources Inc. (VMRI) announces its joint venture partner – AeroLift eXpress – is preparing to head to Trinidad and Tobago for a meeting with that nation’s civil aviation authority to finalize plans for a demonstration flight of its unmanned aerial transport service.
AeroLift is planning the trip in anticipation of signing a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with an international logistics company based in Trinidad. The company has shown strong interest in working with AeroLift to coordinate a live demonstration flight, which will be held on a Trinidadian Coast Guard vessel. The demonstration will pave the way for AeroLift to begin negotiations for commercial operations with the company.
“While in Trinidad, we will meet with various additional companies who welcome this type of technology,” said James Stafford, AeroLift eXpress CEO and Founder. “Following the signing of the MOU and issuing of the waiver by the Trinidad and Tobago Civil Aviation Authority to hold the demonstration, we look forward to quickly moving toward operational status.”
AeroLift is an unmanned aerial transport service with the capacity to deliver payloads of up to 14 pounds at an operating radius of 250 miles. Stafford says AeroLift’s unmanned aerial system will permit operation in challenging seas and terrain, along with the efficiency, speed and range of a fixed-wing aircraft.
“After decades of costly over-water helicopter and marine transport in demanding conditions, AeroLift offers an innovative delivery solution that is safer and more economical,” said Stafford.
