Volatus Aerospace appoints OmniView Tech to distribute the FIXAR vertical take-off RPAS in Canada.

TORONTO — Volatus Aerospace has appointed OmniView Tech as its exclusive distributor of the FIXAR vertical takeoff and landing commercial drones in Canada. Volatus recently announced that it was beginning the manufacture of up to 1,200 units of the RPAS per year at its new facility at the Lake Simcoe Regional Airport in Oro, Ontario.

“This aircraft is both technologically superior and simple in its launch and land use of unique, fixed angle rotors,” comments Glen Lynch, CEO of Volatus Aerospace, “we are proudly going to manufacture this RPAS in Canada and provide an excellent, economic option for LiDAR and photogrammetric survey and mapping missions. We have chosen OmniView as our distribution partner because they are the largest, most experienced RPAS sales and servicing organization in the country. Our customers will benefit from the best customer service available.”

“The FIXAR product delivers a solution many of our customers are looking for and need. It is a commercial workhorse that combines the best characteristics of heavy-duty quadcopters and fixed-wing RPAS,” said Johann Reandino, CEO of OmniView Tech. “We are pleased to have been appointed by and working with Volatus Aerospace. We know there is much more to come from the relationship in terms of additional product and training options.”

The first configuration to be made available is the FIXAR 007. Its two-kilogram (4.4lbs) payload capacity and swappable payload module makes the RPAS ideal for a multitude of applications including mapping/photogrammetry, laser scanning (LiDAR), last-mile delivery, precision agriculture, critical infrastructure monitoring and much more.
