Students and schoolchildren from Veliky Novgorod successfully delivered a small load from the village of Navolok to the village of Wojcie, which is located on an island on Lake Ilmen. The students of the secondary school №36, students of the Novgorod State University and employees of the laboratory “Aeronet” in the university took part in the launch.
As reported Novgorod Region Governor Andrei Nikitin, the university intends to offer its services “Mail of Russia”, whose drone crashed just after the start. According to the head of the region, the creation of a digital map of the site, the determination of takeoff and landing points, as well as testing took only a few days.
From Navolok, a parcel weighing 1.3 kilos was sent to Vojtsi with medicines, mail and sweets. This is the route chosen, since the delivery of goods to the village on the island is traditionally associated with difficulties.
