Parallel Flight Technologies, Inc. is reaching new heights with Parallel Hybrid UAS. The new model can lift and deliver 100 lb loads and has a fly-time of 1 hour. Parallel Hybrid UAS is ideal for delivery of equipment to fire fighters, for industrial logistics, and for medical delivery applications. This is a huge step forward from the first prototype. Heavy-lift coupled with long endurance.

Parallel Flight Technologies’ Heavy Lift Platform is a radical UAS combining extreme heavy lifting and long duration. New (patent pending) Parallel Hybrid technology gives the platform the capability of lifting its own mass in payload, not including fuel, for over an hour. It is also fully redundant and can continue flying in the event of an engine failure. This opens new possibilities for unmanned logistics, search-and-rescue, firefighting, and heavy sensor applications.

With the recent wildfires, manned-aircraft was grounded due to smoke-inversion wherein a layer of smoke causes visibility issues. But not for drones. View below the video interview by Matthew Swinnerton.

Parallel Flight recently raised over $1.6M from Equity Crowdfunding. Let Santa Cruz Works introduce your startup to Equity Crowdfunding.

Parallel Flight is competing in Startup Investment & Community Expo on September 28-30, 2020.
