Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN)’s hope to deliver its product packages to people via drones is still not over, as the Federal Aviation Administration has issued a certificate that allows the company to test delivery drones for its Prime Air Service. A CNET article reported on the news and discussed about the details regarding new certificate issued which grants the permission to Amazon.com, Inc. for experimenting its drones.
Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) gets a clearance from Federal Aviation Administration to experiment its delivery drones on Thursday, as FAA has issued an “experimental airworthiness certificate” to the company that permits the e-commerce giant to conduct research, development and train the team for its Prime Air delivery drones. As said by the agency in a statement, the certificate of experimental airworthiness permits the drones to be operated by licensed pilots during daylight hours at the altitudes below 400 feet.
Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) created a buzz in December 2013 by announcing that the company is going to deliver its small size packages via drones calling the service “Amazon Prime Air”, which created an excitement among the customers as they expected new process of delivery would prove to be speedy for them and they won’t have to wait for days even to get a small-size package from Amazon.com, Inc., but the company came across facing strict regulations by the authorities which limited the operations of its drones.
Last month, the Federal Aviation Administration progressed toward regulating and making legal the routine use of commercial drones as it had released the proposed conditions for commercial drones. According to the agency given requirements, unmanned commercial drones must not be above 55 pounds of weight and should be controlled in daylight within the line of sight of their pilots. According to proposed requirements, the drones must not fly above 500 feet and should not be faster than 100 miles per hour and fly staying away from manned aircraft.
The FAA also requires Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) to submit the monthly data about its experiments activity to the agency, which includes total flights conducted and hours logged by operators per flight. Amazon will also be required to report any hardware or software problems occurred while experimenting and any issues regarding not following the instructions of air traffic controllers. The certificate issued by FAA has allowed Amazon.com, Inc. to test the drones which could ultimately help to improve the speed of its package deliveries and attract more customers especially who don’t hesitate to spend more dollars to get their package as soon as possible.
