The All-India Institute of Medical Sciences-Rishikesh conducted a trial to test the feasibility of drones supplying medicines. A Vertiplane X3 drone was used to deliver 2kg package of anti-tubercular drugs to a district hospital in Tehri Garhwal during the trial. The aerial distance of nearly 40 kilometres between the helipad at AIIMS and the hospital was covered in 30 minutes.
