February 2021: First long-range medical flight
Flying drones in Norway is no trivial task. The weather is harsh, the topography is complex, and the distances are large. If you want to fly in Norway, you need to handle all these challenges. That is why we set out on the technically challenging task of flying from the hospital at Røros to Trondheim, which is the main hub of St. Olavs. Røros is famous for breaking records for the lowest temperatures in Norway, and to reach Trondheim we would have to pass tall mountains and deep valleys. If we can overcome these challenges, then we will be able to operate nearly anywhere in the North.
After months of planning and several hundred kilometers of flight testing, the first flight from Røros to Trondheim was finally completed. And we did it in one of the coldest months of the year. The flight is first of its kind, and it proves that long-range medical transportation is possible, even in a northern climate. We will now begin tackling the medical problems of our time. There are certainly enough of them.
