Amazon Special Delivery in the UK; By Drone?

Prime Air, the beginning of a new Amazon service, made its first test run. Amazon delivered its first package by drone in the United Kingdom. Amazon has begun pilot testing drones for future delivery purposes.

With permission from the Civil Aviation Authority in Britain, the first test flight of Amazons delivery drones took place a few miles away from a drone testing site near Cambridge.  This new service is going to be for the delivery of packages that weigh up to five pounds and will take less than thirty minutes.

The only two trial customers for this new service has only be tested on two customers who happen to live not too far from the testing site. The most recent delivery was for an Amazon Fire TV and a bag of popcorn, which took the drone around thirteen minutes to accomplish.

Since Amazon gained the United Kingdom’s approval in summer 2016, the company says it plans to start expanding its tests to rural areas. That is once its collected all the necessary security information for expanding its drone deliveries. Drone deliveries will be weather dependent and strictly available during the day. Whether Amazon drones will be taking flight in the U.S., all depends on the approval of the Federal Aviation Administration.
