‘It’s a real aircraft. It’s not a toy’: Autonomous cargo drones to be manufactured in Midland area

Dale George is taking cargo shipping to new heights. George, a retired pilot who lives in Tiny Township, has developed a remotely piloted, technologically advanced cargo drone dubbed the Sky Canoe.

“It is not that little multi-rotor drone that lands out on your front lawn and scares your dog,” said George. “It’s a real aircraft. It’s not a toy.”

The Sky Canoe got its name from the canoe-shaped compartment that sits underneath the body of the aircraft, which can carry around 100 kilograms of cargo. []
