Amazon Plans to Deliver Packages by Drones View Count: 57

In many ways, shopping is superior to shopping at your local bookstore or mall. First of all, the difference is selection is huge. Amazon has just about every book in print. Barnes and Nobles storefronts only carry what’s selling at the moment. Unless you happen to have popular tastes, you might have to wait for B&N to order to book for you anyway, and so long as you’re waiting, why not order it yourself from Amazon?

But that’s the problem with Amazon, the waiting. You order a book, and unless you are an Amazon Prime member, you are going to have to wait 3-5 business days. The nice thing about shopping in a real store is that you can handle the items and, once you purchase them, stand up and walk out with them.

In response to this, Amazon, has begun what they call “Prime Air.” They have been doing test flights using drones to fly in packages the same day. Once they get that pesky business of approving everything with the FAA, they expect this to be a popular way to deliver packages: no longer will you have to wait 3-5 days. Today should be soon enough.

“One day, Prime Air vehicles will be as normal as seeing mail trucks on the road today,” explained the company in a Q&A on their webpage.

“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,” they further explained.

Once it all checks out, you can expect your smaller parcels – 5 lbs or less – to qualify for the speedy process.

This is just one of many ways Amazon has been hacking at the branches of their biggest obstacle: delivery times. Another method they’ve used is joining up with the U.S. Postal Service in getting packages delivered on Sunday. As more and more people seek out internet shopping, the more the world will be structured to accommodate this.
