FAA Approves Amazon Household Drone Delivery of Products

“Seven years later, Amazon is only the third company to receive a Part 135 air carrier certificate, after Wing Aviation, which is owned by Google’s parent company, Alphabet; and UPS Flight Forward. Neither company has implemented drone delivery widely as yet. The F.A.A. has been investing in the technology.  On Aug. 21, Elaine L. Chao, the transportation secretary, said that the agency was giving $7.5 million in grants to universities for research on “the safe integration of drones into our national airspace.” Photos courtesy of Prime Air and Wing.” Story and photos courtesy of the New York Times.
