The collaboration between EmbraerX and Pyka is designed to accelerate entry of the Pelican into service in the agriculture sector and it aims to pursue opportunities to scale up services as aircraft operators in Brazil.

EmbraerX and Pyka have formed a partnership to accelerate the future of autonomous aerial agriculture operations. The collaboration is focused on technology, certification, operations and commercialisation of Pyka's Pelican, a 100% electric and autonomous fixed-wing aircraft.
