Please check out the first Spinoff Drone Delivery business to get FAA approval.
Google Alphabet Inc. has become the first unmanned airplane operator to receive government approval as an airline, which is an important step that enables it to start delivering products to actual customers.
The subsidiary, Wing Aviation LLC, already has the same certificates that smaller airlines receive from the US Federal Aviation Administration and the Ministry of Transport. She plans to begin routine supplies of small consumer goods to two rural communities in Virginia within a few months, the company said.
It [the FAA] Wing required Wing to create comprehensive manuals, training practices and a safety hierarchy – just as each air carrier should do.
In order for Wing to run longer and actually charge the service, it is necessary to become a full air carrier. The FAA has confirmed that airline certification has been signed but does not offer additional comments.
Unlike Prime Air at Amazon.com Inc., another unmanned aircraft supply company, Wing will sell products from local retailers. Now, after receiving approval from the FAA, it will begin to find business partners in both cities, said Burgess.
They also believe that FAA is certifying Google's wings supply company to operate as an airline.
The Federal Aviation Administration has certified Alphabet's Wing Aviation to operate as an airline as the first for US unmanned aircraft delivery companies. Wing, which began as a project on Google X, tested its autonomous drones in southwest Virginia and elsewhere.
"Certification of air carriers means that we can start a commercial service that supplies goods from local companies to their homes in the United States," the report posted on the Medium website said.
"This is an important step forward in the safe testing and integration of the drones in our economy." Safety continues to be our number one priority as this technology continues to develop and realize its full potential, "said Transport Secretary Elaine L. Bye. statement from the agency.
The Wing's electric thrusters are powered by 14 propellers, almost all of which are mounted on top to carry loads up to 1.5 kilograms. They are designed to deliver a wide range of everyday items, from food and beverage to medicine and emergency supplies.
By developing delivery drones – and a retail system linking customers to local retailers – Google's parent company is directly competing with Amazon, which is preparing its own unmanned delivery system called Prime Air.
Pizza by air Coming soon
By ordering the food, coffee, medicine, or convenience items from the Wing application on your smartphone, Wing's dron will deliver these things to your yard just a few minutes later.
I guess Wing will join fast food restaurants. Expect Pizza Hut, Domino, etc., delivered to a large part of the nation within a few years.
Amazon will surely follow soon. United Parcel Service and DHL Express also develop their own unmanned systems.
These processes will not work in heavily populated city centers, but much of the county will get pizza and other fast-food drones within a few years.
Drone's delivery will be faster, cheaper and use less carbon than car delivery. Food delivery drivers will disappear within a few years, except in the center of the city.
Some believe the delivery of unmanned aircraft will be a decade if ever. This is 2019.
The free market itself will solve any real or imagined problem with climate change.
