Amazon tests drone delivery service

We're moving closer to a "drone delivery" service from Amazon, but it may happen in the UK first.

Drone delivery in the US may still be years away, because of recent rules put in place by the federal aviation administration.

However, the UK Civil Aviation Authority has given Amazon permission to test several steps of drone delivery, including sending drones to places beyond the sight of the operator.

Under rules in the US, commercial drones must be in the sight of the operator, or an observer who is in communication with the operator.
