SkyDrop (formerly Flirtey) has released episode one of a documentary series “The SkyDrop Story”, to tell the historical story of the first FAA-approved drone delivery on US soil. The delivery drone that made this first delivery will be going on display in the “Thomas W. Haas We All Fly” exhibition at the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum in 2022. The museum also displays the 1903 Wright Flyer that made the first official flight of a powered heavier-than-air flying machine.
The first episode titled “The Kitty Hawk Moment” focuses on the first FAA-approved drone delivery on US soil, which was conducted by SkyDrop in Wise, Virginia. This drone delivery represented the “Kitty Hawk Moment” for the drone delivery industry.
