Why Google Inc. (GOOG) And, Inc. (AMZN) Will Have To Wait Longer For Commercial Drone Usage?

U.S aviation officials have stalled over the years on the legislation of rules that are expected to define the commercial drone industry., Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) and Google Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOGL) continue to maintain a closer eye on the imminent rules that are expected to affect their same-day delivery plans that have been grounded due to a lack of sufficient legislation.

During an interview on Bloomberg, Michael Drobac, argued that sluggish nature of the FAA in implementing new commercial drone rules has caused the U.S to lag the likes of Canada and other European nations on the use of drones.

“I think the technology and the companies here in the U.S. are doing incredible work but the FAA has been too restricted requiring pilots licenses, having be within the line of sight and requiring they be doing daylight hours,” said Mr. Drobac.

The FAA requirement of flying Drones within sight essentially goes to limit, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) and Google Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOGL)’s ability of flying drones to deliver goods to consumers. The irony of the suggested regulations means that commercial use of drones will be prohibited much to the dislike of big tech companies

The expected FAA rules are expected to shed more light on who is to be certified to fly the unmanned aircrafts, purposes for which they can be used for, as well as how drones are certified. Facebook Inc. (NASDAQ:FB), Google Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOGL) and, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) have all been pushing for the drone’s technology. Drobac notes that these companies will have to wait a little bit longer before attaining licenses as full legislation is not expected until 2016.

“Companies like Google X Flight Wing and Amazon Prime Air and GoPro Inc. (NASDAQ:GPRO) and a host of all other companies are going to have to go overseas or they have to go to six test sites in the U.S.. This means they have to transplant their entire teams to theses test sites which is an arcane process,” said Mr. Drobac.

Drobac believes the likes of Google Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOGL) and, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) should be allowed to test drones near their headquarters to easily identify what works and what does not work. As one of the ways of averting safety concerns.
