The FAA has yet to approve commercial use of unmanned aerial vehicles, yet some innovative companies such as Amazon are already planning to use them in creative and effective business models. CEO Jeff Bezos revealed yesterday that within a few years, they could safely offer Prime Air and deliver small packages in under 30 minutes.
We're excited to share Prime Air — something the team has been working on in our next generation R&D lab.
The goal of this new delivery system is to get packages into customers' hands in 30 minutes or less using unmanned aerial vehicles.
Putting Prime Air into commercial use will take some number of years as we advance the technology and wait for the necessary FAA rules and regulations.
