PHOENIX, AZ / ACCESSWIRE / February 5, 2021 / Alpine 4 Technologies, Ltd. (OTCQB:ALPP) a leading operator and owner of small market businesses announced today that one of their drone subsidiaries, Vayu, is set to achieve the world record for distance by flight through their autonomous delivery G1 vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) aircraft.
The Vayu team will be heading to Equatorial Guinea, Africa in the coming weeks to achieve this accomplishment. They will fly their G1 aircraft from the port city of Bata to the island of Bioko approximately 128 miles away. Additionally, they will also fly the G1 from Bioko Island to Annobon Island approximately 364 miles away. The last known distance record was in 2017 with a fixed wing unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) by a Nevada UAS Consortium for about 97 miles.
The application has been filed with the Guinness Book of World Records and the Vayu team, lead by CEO, Daniel Pepper, is working through the logistics of moving the G1 aircraft internationally. This will not be Mr. Pepper’s first trip to Africa with Vayu aircraft. He and his team previously partnered with USAID in Malawi to help combat Zika by testing payload capacity deliveries to remote areas. The team also partnered with the Stony Brook University Global Health Institute to deliver blood samples and vaccines in Madagascar.
Ian Kantrowitz, member of Alpine 4’s Executive Leadership Team commented, “Who doesn’t love a world record? Since the Vayu team is already going to be in Equatorial Guinea meeting with the Ministry of Health anyway, we figured we may as well go for a world record.”
