AMAZON.COM DRONE APPROVED BY FAA

Amazon.com won approval from the FAA to test a delivery drone outdoors, as the e-commerce company pursues its goal of sending packages to customers by small, self-piloted aircraft.

Fulfillment via drone is a realistic – and exciting-- scenario for some package deliveries in the future -- though the use of drones is fraught with issues involving safety and privacy.

Key components and restrictions of the program are below:

  • Amazon prototype drone will be allowed to perform test flights over private, rural land in Washington state.
  • The experimental certificate applies to a particular drone and Amazon must obtain a new certification if it modifies the aircraft in any way.   This makes is it difficult to adapt the model quickly in the field.
  • Amazon must keep flights below 400 feet and keep the drone in sight.  (Amazon asked to fly up to altitudes of 500 feet).
  • Drone operators must have a private pilot licenses and current medical certification.

Industry updates, like these, are part of the Kelly Direct experience.   Our goal is to make you look good.  Keeping you up on top of developments in the fulfillment industry -- and mostly recently LA port operations -- is just part of the value we bring to the table.
