Google's Wing Drone Gets FAA Approval for Commercial Delivery

News

About this Deal

Google's Wing Drone Delivery is the first to get FAA approval and clearance for commercial use. Wing's electric drones are powered by 14 propellers, nearly all of which are top-mounted to help carry loads of up to 1.5 kilograms (3.3 pounds). They're meant to deliver a wide range of everyday items, from food and drinks to medicine and emergency supplies.

Wing has been testing its autonomous drones in southwest Virginia. Wing already operates a commercial air delivery service in Australia, and ready to start trials in Europe, delivering to homes in Helsinki, Finland.

What a time to be alive! I'm a little surprised they received FAA approval before the Amazon drones.
