It positions the company strongly for important global market share, and therefore revenues, in the growing commercial and industrial drone sector.

Swift020 has the ability to take off and land anywhere, like other quad-rotor devices, while being able to transition to efficient fixed-wing forward flight without additional launch and recovery equipment.

Intended for long-range operation

It is intended for long-range operation services such as firefighting, rescue and surveillance and is due to start production later this year.

Based in California, Swift Engineering is a product development and manufacturing services company with more than 30 years’ experience designing and building high-performance vehicles.
