Bell’s Autonomous Pod Transport (APT) has flown with 110Ibs (50 KG) of payload over an eight-mile (12.9 KM) route at Bell’s testing site near Fort Worth, Texas. To date, the APT flight test program has completed over 300 flights and has been envisaged to provide efficient, rapid and dependable transport for payloads up to 70lbs.

Developed by innovative teams, APT delivers mobility without the usual cost, footprint or specialized training, required to operate conventional aircraft. In 2021 APT is expected to demonstrate even more military and commercial operations while simplifying user interfaces and enhancing the aircraft’s autonomous features.
