I came to the island 31 years ago. I’m insulin
dependent. We make medicine for people with diabetes.
Access to this medicine is more than important because without it I would be dead.
We had a really productive meeting there with all the project team for the Diabetes drone.
We use Sky Tango allowing us to co-ordinate the actual mission between all the stake-holders.
Nova-Nordisk whose medicine will be part of the plane load today
Wing Copter who are giving us the actual drone to fly the medicine to the island.
Vodafone who are going to be providing the drone data and connectivity.
Survey Drones Ireland who are actually execute the flight for us, for this innovative beyond
visual line-of-sight flight. The mission is just taking off.The Diabest
Drone Project was centered around delivering medications to the Aran Islands.
It’s absolutely unreal. Visual Contact.
It’s really really amazing to do this. The first in the World delivery of diabetes medicines.
Everything is here that I need. Fantastic.
