From Fighter pilot to Hercules to drones. A very likeable and easy to listen to a businessperson on a very worthwhile mission. ‘On-Demand healthcare with Aeromedical Logistics – Improving lives’. Integration into airspace, and with the highest focus on safety, reliability, and sustainability Eric and Josh (partners) have been successful in proof of concept delivery on securing tenders in Malawi, Mozambique, Dem. Rep. of Congo as well as the Republic of Vanuatu (an archipelago of some 1100 islands of which 62 are inhabited). They are fully aware of the fact that 50% of the world’s population lacks access to basic healthcare. Every 3 kg of payload matters and is making a difference. Cold chain secure, the logo, a Kookaburra and its Swoop skills is at the origins of the company name as well as its practice. A worthy cause and great chat.
