OUR VISION

Regional air cargo service is a promising market: point-to-point air shuttles address the failure of road networks and the increase in the global flow of freight. In addition, the high and ever-increasing age of general aviation aircraft worldwide suggests that a fleet renewal program will soon be initiated among aerial work operators, at the same time allowing them to switch to UAVs and green fuel.

For those reasons we have developed a robust twin hybrid-engine, stable UAV aircraft which is laid out and certified for cargo operations and special missions. Thanks to very low turnaround times between flights this winged “estafette”, a french word for courier and also for a van, will contribute to upscaling General Aviation businesses by improving their efficiency and extending their range of services.
