The EU project ATRA – Aerial Transport for Remote Areas has started!
In remote areas, deliveries are usually expensive and challenging. In the Alps (Europe) there are mountain shelters that cannot be accessed with vehicles. In order to be able to offer board and lodging, these shelters depend on helicopters that are expensive and inefficient. There is still no alternative. This is where FlyingBasket comes in. With the innovative multicopter (UAV) FB3, which can carry a load of up to 100 kg, we aim to provide this service. FB3 convinces due to low noise, no exhaust gases, and battery energy transformed to motive power exceeding 80% efficiency.
Phase 1 involves conducting a feasibility study to understand the market, competitors, customers, end-users and stakeholders.
