Tiny Airplanes Can Solve Big Problems

Why the Sky Is Key to the Cities of the Future

Speakers

Blue is the new black: With our network of ground infrastructure crumbling under the strain of overuse, the sky above us will become just as important as the road beneath us in the cities of the future.

Alphabet’s Wing has built a fleet of lightweight delivery drones that can transport small packages directly to homes in minutes. This all-electric, zero emission technology is significantly safer and cleaner than road transportation, and creates new economic opportunities for businesses and communities.

Getting drones in the sky is one thing; coexisting with other airspace operators is quite another. That’s why Wing is investing in building highways in the sky that will allow us to safely harness the space directly above us to bring the benefits of aviation to more people.
