Flight testing puts cargo UAV on track for commercial ops

Following the commercial success of its agricultural spray aircraft, which led to a $37 million Series A raise in April 2022, Pyka has secured pre-commitments of over 80 orders and options for its Pelican Cargo.

The Pelican is already flying for customers in Central America.

EmbraerX teams up with Pyka to place Pelican in Brazil

EmbraerX and Pyka intend to concentrate joint efforts on getting the Pelican into the precision agricultural sector, particularly across Brazil. It already has a presence in Central America.

The P3 will use a unique, patented propulsion system that utilises fixed pitch folding propellers in a pusher puller configuration.

Pyka brings in automotive expert as the P3 takes shape

Agricultural spray drone-maker Pyka has spent over four years working on a larger aircraft for cargo and passenger missions. Now it has appointed former Ford man Dan Grossman to preside over its development.
