People are familiar with drones and their technology just to record amazing landscapes of cities and other places and never thought it would be helpful for anything else. But Telangana is all set to surprise the country as it is prepping to become the first state to use drone technology to deliver vaccines to healthcare centers in rural areas. 


The premium express delivery service Blue Dart from the city has collaborated with a Delhi-based startup Skye Air Mobility and has begun trial runs at Vikarabad. It will continue till mid-October as a part of  'Medicine From The Sky' launched by the state in 2019 in partnership with the World Economic Forum. These drones, which are being tested at Vikarabad, will start by carrying 2-3kg medicines and fly to the healthcare center in Vikarabad, 500 meters away.


The drone will maintain an altitude of 400 feet. The current trials will only feature essential medicines that will be delivered to the healthcare centers. Skye Mobility will test the drones with medicines in two corridors.


 The first one is the visual line of sight (VLOS) that will cover a distance of up to 1Km, and the second corridor will be Beyond Visual Line Sight(BVLOS) that will cover 10Km in 25minutes. The three-phase trial will see six flights fly daily and deliver more than 170 vials of medicines and vaccines. 


However, initial days will see other samples carried in similar temperature-controlled boxes, and the final trials might feature precious vaccines moving from point A to B.  The Civil Aviation Minister, Jyotiraditya Scindia, took to Twitter to express how making drones flexible in the country has opened the door for innovation and how Telangana is edging closer to something different.
