MEXICO CITY: Venezuela is launching mass production of domestically-developed multi-purpose drones and single-engine planes, President Nicolas Maduro said.

On Thursday, the Venezuelan leader signed a decree to create the National Aviation Service Centre, reports Sputnik news agency.

“Two prototypes of training planes have been completely manufactured in Venezuela,” Maduro said in a televised address.

The single-engine planes are designed to be used in agriculture and aerial surveillance.

Maduro also presented a multi-purpose drone, whose mass production will start in the near future.

Both projects will promote national development and security, according to the Venezuelan leader.
