We are reinventing how products are delivered around the world by unlocking the path not yet traveled.
 
VOLANS-i was founded in 2015 and is backed by Silicon Valley’s most prominent VCs, including LightSpeed Venture Partners and YCombinator. Volans-i provides fast on-demand aerial delivery service for time-critical shipments over long ranges. We build and operate long-range, high-payload drones for commercial, defense, and humanitarian applications. Leveraging drone technology as a transportation method, we help our customers gain control of their supply chain and save millions of dollars on downtime and inventory costs.
