Amazon gets thumbs up to test its drones

In Limbo

13 Apr 2015

Amazon has received permission to test its drone delivery system in the US.  The service, called Amazon Prime Air, would allow small packages of up to fifty-five pounds to be delivered to customers.

The Federal Aviation Administration has said the testing can move forward as long as the drones cannot fly higher than 400 feet in the air. They can also not exceed 100 miles per hour and must always remain within the operators line of sight.
