Drones are changing the way we live and how we do business.
They’re transforming industries from retail and agriculture to filmmaking and construction. And the US is leading the way in commercial drone use.
Have you heard of the latest trend in the drone delivery service industry? It’s a company called Flirtey, and they’re the first company in the United States to have completed a fully autonomous drone delivery of both goods and medicines to a rural health care clinic in Nevada. The company was founded in 2012, and they’ve been waiting for the Federal Aviation Administration to create new rules and regulations for drone use in the United States. On July 17th, 2016, they made history.”It always seems impossible until it’s done.” -Nelson Mandela.
Only five years ago, the idea of drone delivery seemed like a futuristic, far-fetched idea. However, thanks to companies like Amazon, that may not be the case for long. See, Amazon is testing a new delivery system that uses drones to deliver packages to customers.
The company has been testing the technology for three years and is the first to receive the Federal Aviation Administration’s approval for commercial drone use.
