No Pizza Blitzkrieg Yet: Delivery Drones Deemed Illegal

The Federal Aviation Administration wants to remind everyone that delivery-via-drone, whether for commercial for private purposes, is currently still illegal.

Although the rules regarding the airborne robots are set to be reassessed in 2015, the FAA has allowed drone usage in a limited amount by police and scholars who hold proper "Certificate Of Authority" documentation. They also allowed one company, BP, to use a drone in Alaska to monitor oil pipelines in the deep wilderness.

Regardless of what the rules become in 2015, major businesses that could benefit from drone delivery remain undeterred in their quest to utilize the flying delivery droids. Paul Misener, Vice President of Global Public Policy for Amazon, claims the ruling "has no effect on our plans...this is about hobbyists and model aircrafts, not Amazon."

Drone dogfights to follow?

Birdwatching in 2015 is going to get weird.

  7. Well, since 2015, a lot of things have changed and seeing drones buzzing around the neighborhood delivering pizza or something else, is not that far from happening. But, beside the law, there are more issues that are still stoping this from happening. Major companies like Amazon or Domino's Pizza, don't have to worry about the actuall cost of having a drone, while the smaller, family businesses, most of the time don't have a clue that the price you pay to buy a drone, is definitely not the total amount of money you will need to keep it flying and doing what you need it to. To get more familiar with this topic, I suggest checking out this article: http://mydronelab.com/buyers-guide/cost-of-drones.html
