Drone That Hovers Like a Helicopter and Flies Like a Plane Turns 3-Day Journey into 20-Minute Ride

‘It’s a helicopter, it’s a plane, no it’s a Wingcopter!’ This pioneering transport drone called the Wingcopter, created by a German aviation company, is known for its core innovation – a unique tilt-rotor mechanism that guarantees “a smooth and robust transition between hovering like a multicopter and flying forward like a plane.”

The Wingcopter’s unmanned aircraft technology has an impressive track record in delivering a variety of goods and medical supplies over long distances worldwide. It can turn a three-day journey into a 20-minute ride. It features vertical takeoffs and landings in tight spaces and transitioning to efficient, high-speed horizontal flight, which makes it especially useful in remote areas.



Known for its accuracy in delivering heavy payloads even in the harshest of weather conditions, the Wingcopter covers distances of up to 120k and it holds the Guinness World Speed record of 240 km/h. Wingcopter, which is also used by UPS, operates with a low noise emission.
