Drone capable of carrying 6 people was introduced in California

California startup Advanced Tactics, Inc. announced its newest development - AT Transporter, a multi-purpose drone with effectiveness of some light aircraft.

The new machine from Californian engineers is capable of developing a speed of up to 113km/h on the highway, and go up to 3 kilometers in the air, carrying 6 people at once or 544kg of work load, reports New Atlas.

Unlike most drones, AT Transporter uses not electric but petrol engines, which gives it such wide opportunities. The flight time of this drone is 7 hours, distance is 1296km with a maximum speed of 354km/h.

These are characteristics of a turbocharged model, which the creators are working on. The presented working prototype does not have turbo, so the characteristics are somewhat lower: maximum speed is 322km/h, flight time is up to 5 hours, working load is 3 people, or 363kg.

The drone can be used for a variety of tasks: as a firefighting device, for supplying outlying regions and disaster areas, for evacuation and much more.

The estimated price of the simplified model is $249,000, the full scale six-seat model – $395,000.
