Wing in 2023: The Launch Pad for Scaled Drone Operations

2023 has been a year of increasingly palpable momentum as we have developed commercial integrations, announced new partners, and seen regulatory-firsts for airspace and operations.

We continue to pioneer new technology systems for drone delivery, from our modular, portable, lightweight nests that can be set up in a matter of minutes, to our new AutoLoader systems which integrate seamlessly with existing curbside pickup – without the need for a business to change their workflows or alter their infrastructure.

We expanded with DoorDash into Queensland, Australia; began Walmart grocery delivery in the Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas metroplex, and began exploring medical drone delivery with Apian in Ireland and the United Kingdom.

We testified before Congress to advocate for the right framework for regulating uncrewed aviation, encouraged common sense legislation that will allow drone delivery services to expand to more places in the U.S., and shared news of our summary grant from the FAA that will allow us to scale more effectively. As a result of this momentum, more customers have experienced Wing’s version of drone delivery right as the demand for fast-mile delivery is surging. We’ve designed our system so all that’s needed from a customer is a small clear space on the property with vertical access to the sky – no infrastructure, QR codes, or landing pads required to receive Wing deliveries! Our aircraft are also capable of delivering fragile goods like eggs or even fresh hot coffee in under 30 minutes, allowing customers to get what they need, when they need it.

Wing has delivered to baseball stadiums in dense cities, to regulators in Geneva, and even to visitors at Oshkosh AirVenture, the world’s largest airshow which boasts some of the world’s busiest air traffic. Not to mention, a Virginia couple set the world record for most items delivered by drone.

2023 was the biggest year yet for drone delivery, and we couldn’t be more excited about 2024. New commercial drone approvals are moving forward every day, we’ve built our technology for scale, and we look forward to delivering to more customers in 2024.
