We’re Up and Away! The Maiden Flight of AIRTL03

  • Cobalt 110 inaugural flight Feb. 8, 2022
  • Critical piece for AIRmarket’s work with Transport Canada 

On February 7, 2022, outside of Edmonton, Alberta, AIRmarket conducted the maiden flight of the new Cobalt 110, now known as the AIRTL03.

With a >25kg VLOS SFOC, the Cobalt smoothly flew in the air for one hour and 12 minutes covering a total distance of 83,977m within visual line of sight of the pilot. This essential step paves the way to expanding to BVLOS flights without Visual Observers and Detect and Avoid as a Service.

AIRmarket’s Chief Pilot, Cale Griffith, used FLYsafe enterprise software to set up the test flight and log all of the mission details. 

“We’re proud of the work our team has done to get us to this important milestone. We’re on track to showcase how our SKYLINK system is going to work, and the impact it will have on the UAS industry in Canada,” says CEO and Founder, Lindsay Mohr.

The Cobalt 110 is capable of 1000km range and 10 hours endurance.  The Cobalt is an important piece of the puzzle in testing BVLOS and DAAaaS within the Transport Canada regulatory roadmap.
