Amazon stated on Monday, that the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) issued it authorization to use drones to deliver products. The authorization, demonstrates “confidence in Amazon’s security operations and procedures” to deploy a service that will allow packages to arrive in one day, said the company’s vice president, David Carbon.
In recent times, Amazon has made huge investments in a logistics network that allows it to quickly deliver products purchased by its customers through the Prime Air network by drones to decrease delivery time and in some cases access to rural areas. Also the idea behind it’s creating and autonomous net of drones that can deliver on the same day and save the expenses of a driver, car, petrol, etc.
Deliveries in 30 minutes after order is placed
“We will continue to develop and fine-tune our technology to fully integrate delivery drones into the airspace and we will work closely with the FAA and other regulators around the world to realize our vision of 30-minute deliveries” said David Carbon.
Amazon plans to use that certification to dispatch fully electronic drones to deliver items to customers. In order to obtain this qualifying certification, it had to prove the security of those operations and proof that the drones were capable of identify people, dogs even clothes lines.
