Sabrewing Chairman and Chief Executive Ed De Reyes will join Cargo Facts EMEA 2023 for the panel discussion “Cargo Drones/eVTOLS/Unmanned Craft: Separating fact from fiction” on Tuesday, Feb. 7, at 1:45 p.m. (GMT +4).
Cargo Facts EMEA will return to Dubai on Feb. 6-8 in an event that will bring together industry experts and offer access to emerging airfreight technology, and provide solutions to current air cargo market challenges.
De Reyes joined Sabrewing as CEO in March 2016. He also serves as managing director for flight test and evaluation company Water West Enterprises, and co-founded green technology startups NitroTurbodyne and CarbonCap LLC.
Earlier this year, Sabrewing secured Arabian Development and Marketing Corporation (ADMC) as a launch customer for its Rhaegal RG-1-A cargo drone just weeks after the drone’s first flight. The ADMC order generates $255 million in revenue for the company and kicks off the production line for the new drone, which Sabrewing expects to be certified in Q3 2023.
The Oxnard, Calif.-based Sabrewing also produces a second cargo drone: the larger Rhaegal B. This drone has already generated 128 firm orders and LOIs for 400 units.
