Flytrex is the most innovative delivery provider that has revolutionized the industry by pioneering the use of drones for its services in the United States.

The drone delivery service company is one of many to benefit from the technological innovations of the modern age.

Flytrex

Flytrex was founded in Israel in late 2013, but it wasn’t until 2017 that the company started operating.

The first regulatory-approved operational delivery services were offered in Reykjavik, Iceland, where it became a leader in on-demand delivery services via autonomous vehicles.

The company became the first in the world to offer complete end-to-end drone delivery solutions.

Drone capabilities

Flytrex drones can carry packages up to 6.6lbs or 3kg.

Flytrex uses an attached delivery box to ensure customers receive their orders as packaged.

Using a firing mechanism, the package is lowered by 25 meters, ensuring quiet and safe delivery – from food and drinks to a dozen eggs.

Speed ​​of the drone

They are also capable of covering a distance of approximately 6 air miles.

Drones typically fly at speeds of 52mph, allowing the company to reach customers in less than five minutes and keep food hot or cold at its destination. 

Carbon footprint

Flytrex drones are also autonomous, meaning nobody has to fly them.

The drones are fully electric, leaving a lower carbon footprint than traditional delivery models.

Flytrex CEO and Co-Founder Yariv Bash said:

“It’s a lot faster and a lot quieter. We offer a much better solution for the customer and the restaurant. It’s a win-win for everyone.”

Despite the innovative concept, the company has a team of FAA-certified drone operators who oversee every delivery to ensure operations are running smoothly.

Flytrex App

The Flytrex app allows customers to order food from partner restaurants located within the company’s delivery area.

The app’s services are contactless, allowing users to order from the comfort of their own home.

Flytrex Market

Yariv Bash said the company is targeting suburban markets because it is economically and strategically feasible to serve these areas.

However, he also talked about the FAA’s approval process to fly drones, saying it’s easier to protect them in suburban settings than in urban ones.

“This is a very nasty process,” Bash said of the FAA clearance process.

“Only three companies focused on home drone delivery are doing what we’re doing.”
