Delivery drone manufacturer Wingcopter has signed a strategic partnership with aviation company Synerjet to allow the Latin American company to act as a distributor and local technical support provider for the Wingcopter 198 Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) to customers in the region.
The partnership said as Brazil and countries across South and Central America have vast and sparsely populated areas, they are perfectly suited for different drone delivery applications. Synerjet intends to provide drone operators, logistics companies, and providers in the healthcare industry with Wingcopter UAS technology.
José Eduardo Brandão, CEO of Synerjet, said: “This step represents an important milestone for us, one that is part of our vision of continued support to developing aviation in the region, reaching out to remote areas more efficiently, and selling and supporting the most suitable products available in the industry.”
Furthermore, the agreement makes Synerjet a member of the Wingcopter Authorised Partnership Program (WAPP). Authorised Wingcopter partners are trained and allowed to operate, promote, and distribute the world’s first triple-drop delivery drone, the Wingcopter 198, as well as receive early access to updates, upgrades, and new products.
With the WAPP, Wingcopter is working to establish a global network of strategic partners. The program allows drone operators, resellers, and agents all over the world to tap the full potential of drone delivery. It also enables Wingcopter to scale internationally in a fast and efficient way.
“This partnership represents an exciting step on our mission to create logistical highways in the sky throughout the world, and we are very happy to take it together with Synerjet. It is our first, but certainly not our last step in Latin America,” added Tom Plümmer, CEO of Wingcopter.
