Wingcopter is an award-winning German manufacturer of unmanned eVTOL aircrafts dedicated to improving the lives of people worldwide through meaningful commercial and humanitarian applications. The start-up focuses on the delivery of medical goods as well as parcels and food. With its unique, patented tilt-rotor mechanism, Wingcopter by far exceeds the range and payload capabilities of commercial multicopter drones, achieving a new dimension of efficiency. The electrically powered Wingcopter aircrafts take off and land vertically like multicopters in the smallest of spaces and fly long distances as efficiently and quickly as fixed-wing aircrafts. This enables ranges of up to 75 miles (120 kilometers) and a Guinness world record speed of 150 mph (240 km/h). Even in strong winds of up to 44 mph (71 km/h) or inclement weather, the Wingcopter flies autonomously and reliably. Wingcopter is a winner of the World Bank-sponsored Lake Kivu Challenge flying competition, the German Government's #SmartDevelopmentHack, the German Aviation Innovation Award (IDL), the Digital Logistics Award, the record holder of the "DroneMasters" drone marathon as well as SDG's Spotlight Winner of the Japanese NTT Open Innovation Challenge.
