Rwandan Engineers Jet Off to Train Americans on Drone Technology

Zipline has sent flight operators from Rwanda to the United States to train their American counterparts after the company received a go-ahead from the government to deliver supplies. The company has its global training centre in Rwanda where a team of four certified locals have been training people from Ghana, the U.S. and other countries in flight and fulfilment operations. In 2016, the drone logistics company started delivering blood in Rwanda in what was, at the time, the first national drone delivery system.
