Amazon to launch drone deliveries

Not in the UK just yet, but interesting all the more.

 

Amazon unveiled plans to launch a new delivery service dubbed Prime Air, which uses drones (Unmanned aerial vehicles) to deliver customer parcels.

Whilst the scheme is set to be limited, initially to the USA and items under 5lbs (2.2KG) the retailer could be able to deliver such parcels in less than half an hour to a max distance of 10 Miles. Amazon have admitted that it would be unlikely the service would be available until 2015 maybe even later, because of the need to wait for the necessary FAA rules and regulations to come into effect.
