US Government ‘Shoot Down’ Plans for Drone Delivery

Those who follow the Speed Couriers blog are sure to recall the coverage we’ve had on Amazon’s proposed delivery drones; a concept which blew the minds of the media upon the announcement of the idea a couple of years ago. Since then, there has been little news on the topic, until now.

Reports tell that the US government has for now shot down the ambitions of Amazon and any other American companies who were hoping to use drones to deliver items such as light post and packages or even pizzas!

The news comes following a proposal for a new set of regulations from the Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) which would put strict rules on the commercial use of drones, effectively barring companies like Amazon from using them for delivery purposes.

The rules proposed by the FAA would mean that a drone operator must be able to see their aircraft at all times and that the small flyers are barred from going over populated areas, making the use of drones for airborne delivery impossible.

So, futuristic drone deliveries won’t be coming anytime soon it seems, however we do provide a sameday delivery service by motorbike which is perfect for a fast, secure (and still darn cool!) delivery service.
