December 10, 2020: Barry Koperberg, founder and general manager of Wings For Aid, stated that Africa is way ahead when it comes to the acceptance of drones. He was speaking at the Digital Air Cargo Forum hosted by The International Air Cargo Association (TIACA) in association with the STAT Media Group held from December 1-10.
He observed it in one of the webinar series titled %u2018Drones4Cargo - Are drones ready to take-off for deliveries - big and small?'. Koperberg said that from the humanitarian point of view, there are 100 million people served every year who can are reached by airdrops, whereas 20 million people remain out of access. Cargo drone was a matter of acceptance by the general public, and I concur that we are living in a time where technology has matured. Reaching people in times of need is really of societal value."
The company has recently launched a solution for mini freight carrying 160 kilogrammes.
He concluded, "We see African authorities working very hard. Even though Europe is trying to accept drones, Africa still leads in the usage of drones, as they are focusing on building better infrastructure."
