Online car buying website Carwow has launched a new way to deliver cars in the UK, the company will use drones to deliver new vehicles to their customers.
The online car buying service have created a fleet of drones using modified ex-RAF Chinook helicopters that can be controlled remotely.
A fleet of ex-RAF Chinooks has been acquired and retrofitted with remote-controlled actuators, allowing them to act as supersized drones guided to their drop off points from carwow’s offices in Holborn, London. The helicopters’ massive 10,886kg lift capability and cruising speed of more than 180mph means even cars as hefty as the new Range Rover can be dispatched to far flung areas of the UK in a matter of hours.
Meanwhile, Mat Watson – presenter of carwow’s new YouTube channel – has been sent on a advanced piloting course and will take up the additional role of chief drone pilot. Speaking about the unique delivery service, he said:
“It’s been a learning curve, but delivering cars by rotor power will really propel the buying process through the 21st Century and beyond. To be honest, we’re really surprised that this hasn’t been done already. It’s a no-brainer!”
