First FAA-Approved Drone Delivery Isn’t Amazon – It’s a Medical Supply Delivery to People in Need

Posted by on July 19th, 2015

Drone delivery services have faced a LOT of set backs, legal issues and red tape.

But now all of that seems to be slowly melting away and all the starting parameters and legislation should be ironed out with in the year.

Recently the FAA has allowed testing of drone delivery in Wise County, Virginia where poverty is quickly taking hold as the coal-mining community loses handfuls of jobs and, in turn businesses, because of new energy alternatives.

What’s more exciting than the delivery is just how ready the community, which seems kinda old-school, is to embrace this new technology and become a testing ground for more drone-based experiments and missions in the hopes of getting their local economy back on track.
