A drone logistics firm has chosen downtown Dayton for its headquarters. Drone Express has announced its new home is in the Firefly Building at 123 Webster Street. “I specifically moved my family to Dayton from New York so that our corporate headquarters would be in the birthplace of aviation,” Drone Express CEO, Beth Flippo, said in a release. “We are carrying out the legacy the Wright Brothers began here in 1903.” Drone Express is expected to deliver the ceremonial first pitch ball to the neighboring Dayton Dragons’ stadium at multiple games this season, and is currently running a delivery pilot program with Papa Johns from its headquarters. The company has installed a mobile launch pad at a Papa Johns location in Georgia as part of the delivery collaboration. The pilot program is expected to continue for several weeks while Drone Express assesses market research, delivery data, and overall customer interest. Earlier this year, Flippo told the Dayton Business Journal that Papa Johns will allow the drone service to select future delivery locations once the pilot program is complete.
