A Camcopter S-100 drone made the first commercial drone delivery to an offshore oil platform in late August of 2020 and it might be the beginning of a major industry.

The helicopter drone flew a 3-D printed part from Norway to a rig located about 60 miles off the coast.

The flight was conducted without any special airspace adjustments and the drone was just part of the traffic servicing the oil fields. The drone also did an exterior inspection of the drilling platform and performed a simulated search and rescue drill with the rig’s standby vessel.
