Our Take on BlackFly
BlackFly is entirely new to the world as of 12 July 2018 - the company did a great job keeping the development of their vehicle under wraps until they were ready to release footage of the aircraft conducting test flights in Canada. It will be interesting to observe how the progression of the certification process advances as Opener (the company that is developing the BlackFly) is pursuing certification and flight testing with Transport Canada.
