Drone aircraft to fly cargo cheaper and with less emissions than a Boeing 747

Drone aircraft to fly cargo cheaper and with less emissions than a Boeing 747

As reported at SingularityHub, a new startup Nautilus has secured orders of over 440(!) of its drone ‘blended wing’ aircraft that can move 60% more cargo with 50% less carbon emissions than a Boeing 747.

The drones will initially be remotely piloted (finally! all those hours spent playing Microsoft Flight Simulator might land you a job 😄), but have been designed and built for autonomous flight once allowed by regulations.
