Updated:2017-12-28 14:05:34   China Daily

Chinese logistics giant SF Express carried out its first demonstration flight using drones to deliver emergency supplies at an airport in southwestern Yunnan province on Tuesday.

The drone arrived at the airspace above a base station at the simulated emergency site after a 30-minute flight. It then descended to the height of about 300 meters and delivered spare parts for telecommunications to the ground in about 30 seconds.

The trial is aimed at testing the company's capability in applying logistics drones in emergency services.
