UK more drone-friendly for Amazon testing
Amazon is continuing its plans to delivery via drone, and the UK is now signed up to help. Amazon got the green light from the UK Civil Aviation Authority (FAA equivalent) to fly drones “beyond-line-of-sight” in both rural and suburban areas, while monitored by a single pilot. It’s a key step forward, since practical use of drones of delivery would not involve human operators watching them constantly in person. The US still doesn’t allow this, by the way, hence the need to cross the pond.
