Tiny drones at the world’s biggest air show

Guess where the busiest airport in the world was this week? London? Dubai? New York? It was actually in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. Every year, this midwestern city is the site of AirVenture, the world’s largest aviation event with companies around the world showcasing the biggest and best aviation has to offer. This year, we added some tiny planes to the mix with demonstration flights of Wing’s drone delivery platform throughout the week.

Adding Wing’s tiny aircraft to this big air show was no small feat. This isn’t the first time we’ve taken the opportunity to demonstrate what our drones are capable of. Earlier this year, we made a delivery of beer and peanuts to a Major League Baseball stadium in Colorado to demonstrate the ability of our drones to operate in dense, urban environments. 

Demonstrating Wing’s delivery platform at the world’s most famous airshow is a small but significant step in the progression of delivery drones. Just a few years ago, delivery by drone was non-existent. Today, there are communities around the world experiencing drone delivery at scale with thousands of flights each day. Soon, you won’t need to attend the world’s largest air show to see delivery drones in action – you’ll just need to pull out your phone and place an order yourself!
