Independent drone delivery service Flirtey has announced it has unveiled its latest industry-leading drone delivery technology at The National Press Club in Washington, DC on Monday, September 9, the company said.

Senator Catherine Cortez Masto kicked off the event with opening remarks, welcoming Flirtey, the pioneer of the commercial drone delivery industry, and its Founder and CEO, Matthew Sweeny.

Flirtey conducted the first Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)-approved drone delivery and has gone on to become the first unmanned aircraft system company to perform an autonomous drone delivery to a home; the first to launch a commercial drone delivery service; the first to launch an automated external defibrillator drone delivery service in the US. Flirtey has worked alongside NASA, the City of Reno, Johns Hopkins University of Medicine, emergency medical services provider REMSA, and various commercial partners to create the fastest, most efficient and customer-centric logistics service in the world.
