Medifly Hamburg

Medical air transport service with unmanned aircraft

About the project

Unmanned aircraft systems offer added value in many areas. The “Medifly Hamburg” project explores how unmanned aircraft systems can be employed for the transport of medical samples. Can flights be safely conducted in urban airspace? And do unmanned aircraft offer a significant reduction in transport time as compared to driving ambulances through urban road traffic?
