Athens 10 October 2018: Wingtra, the Swiss drone company that develops the first commercially successful VTOL (vertical take-off and landing) drone, has signed a reseller agreement with Tree Company Corporation AEBE, a distributor of surveying, precision agriculture and GPS systems with offices based in Athens, Thessaloniki as well as a in Cyprus through Haldera Trading Ltd., their affiliated daughter company.
“We are very excited to announce our partnership with Wingtra to the industry professionals in Greece. The WingtraOne has the benefits of safer take-off and landing, great payload options and highly accurate mapping over vast areas of land,” stated George Polykretis, Managing Director at Tree Company Corporation.
Antonio Živolić, Sales Manager at Wingtra, commented, “We are very pleased to have appointed an authorised distributor for Greece. Our partnership with the reputable Tree Company Corporation AEBE and Haldera Trading Ltd. will enable surveying and mapping professionals in Greece and Cyprus to experience the next generation of WingtraOne VTOL drones with the highest standards of service and customer support.”
WingtraOne takes-off and lands as a multicopter but flies in the air as a fixed wing aircraft. This technology eliminates the risk of damaging the aircraft while landing, lets the drone carry heavier and thus better sensors (e.g. 40MP Sony RX1RII) and still allows mapping of large areas.
The new PPK (post process kinematics) upgrade allows the WingtraOne to reach new level of accuracy. With the highest quality mapping cameras: the Sony RX1RII and state-of-the-art PPK system, WingtraOne reaches accuracy down to 1 cm without any ground control points.
Wingtra develops, produces and commercializes high precision VTOL fixed-wing drones that collect survey-grade aerial data. Wingtra entered the market in early 2017 and has been selling globally ever since. Recently the company has raised additional $5.8M to meet the demand in 2018 and partnered with biggest surveying, mining and precision agriculture equipment dealers across the globe.
