Dr. Seyed Mohseni, CEO of SAMAD Aerospace, commented:

“Our fully electric VTOL Starling Cargo aircraft will change the future of transportation reducing emissions and carbon footprint of air cargo.”

The Starling Cargo aircraft can be utilised for delivering humanitarian critical cargo of desperately needed food, medicine and equipment to often remote regions of the world with underdeveloped or damaged local infrastructure.

Available to pre-order now for delivery in Q4 2022, the Starling Cargo will offer an air cargo option faster than conventional travel by utilising locations much closer to the customer’s required point of departure and destination, including remote locations.

With the Starling Cargo aircraft, SAMAD Aerospace will revolutionise the way goods fly around the world, making air cargo faster, greener and more sustainable.
