Wing, a subsidiary of Alphabet, has built a small, lightweight aircraft and navigation system that can deliver small packages-- including food, medicine, and household items-- directly to homes in minutes. Created in 2012, Wing has conducted more than 100,000+ flights across three continents. We believe drone delivery will improve the way our cities operate by reducing road congestion and creating new economic opportunities for local businesses. For more information, visit Wing.com.
