Companies everywhere are marching to the Department of Transportation to get their drones in. Everyone wants their brand to be the face of the growing drone market. Truly, drones have enough versatility in them that they can be in any field and be effective. Their structure can change consistently to fulfill any need in the field. They can equip cameras, thermal sensors, additional battery, and more.
Flirtey is an upcoming drone company based from Reno, Nevada. The company recently approved by the DoT to join in the Federal Aviation Administration’s Unmanned Aircraft Systems Integration Pilot Program. This would provide opportunities for the company to get their name out there, and to get started in their leads.
Flirtey Drone Emergencies:
The end game for Flirtey at the moment is a noble one. Instead of recreation, they aim for more serious purposes. They plan for their drones to deliver goods to clients at a fast pace. And yes, you may think that online shopping sites like Amazon already apply this method. Pizza places like Domino’s offer fast drone delivery when ordering via phone or online. So how is Flirtey’s tactic any different?
Well, the difference is that Flirtey deals in delivering defibrillators.
You see, defibrillators are rare in places outside of a hospital setting. In most clinics, they are not even there. So what do you do when a person’s heart stops? Well, it’s usually basic CPR until the ambulance comes along. With the use of these new drones, more lives end up getting saved in the process. Instead of a 50/50 chance and hoping the ambulance comes on time, a drone coming from the clouds can make it possible. Ambulances may be limited in number. They can also face the ever-present traffic jams especially in metropolitan areas. Sometimes, ambulances do not arrive on time.
This drone delivery method for getting defibrillators on the field makes quick work of obstacles. Imagine a world where a life saving device can arrive as fast as your pizza ordered online. Imagine not having to wait hopelessly for an ambulance to get first aid treatment. That world may soon come to reality with these new age of drones.
