The 'AirMule' is an autonomous ambulance drone that is capable of airlifting passengers to safety. As drone technology continues to improve, many companies are looking for ways to use drones to improve life-saving services. This particular drone can be used in emergency rescue situations in which helicopters may not be an option.

The AirMule is an autonomous drone that can take off and land vertically. The drone is specially designed to withstand environments that may not be safe for helicopters, such as battlefields. In the event of an emergency, the drone can be used to airlift people to safety. With a maximum carrying capacity of 450kg and a distance of up to 31 miles, the drone could be useful for a myriad of situations.

Although the drone is still in the early stages, tests indicate that the AirMule is capable of airlifting passengers during untethered flights.
