Royal mail is running a series of test flights of an autonomous cargo drone to the Isles of Scilly in the UK.

The month-long series of autonomous test flights between Perran porth Airfield in Cornwall on the mainland and St Mary’s on the Isles of Scilly are using Windracer’s Ultra UAV for a scheduled 70 mile (110km) long BVLOS (Beyond Visual Line of Sight) route. The flights are the first time a delivery company has delivered mail using an autonomous drone to the UK Channel Islands.
