Volans-i, an on-demand drone delivery firm based in San Francisco, has raised 20 million USD in Series A funding. The funding was led by Lightspeed Venture Partners, which also led Volans-i’s seed round of funding. Additional support for the seed round came from Y Combinator, a start-up accelerator based in California. 

Volans-i has developed a long-range system that can deliver heavy items such as parts and medical supplies, delivering 9 kilograms as far as 500 kilometres. The firm envisions supporting military forces as well as commercial supply chains in sectors like construction, mining, oil & gas, and heavy equipment operations.
