Two prototypes of the small, unmanned craft were unveiled at the Government Summit on Monday.

Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid, Vice President of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, personally attended the pilot tests, according to state news agency Wam.



“What these things are best suited for is delivery of small, light value things that are time sensitive, like medicines, identification documents, vital papers and things of that nature,” said Dr Noah Raford, special adviser to the Office of the Prime Minister, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid.
