Amazon Primer Air, one step closer to becoming a reality

Amazon Prime Air

A few months ago, Amazon managed to carry out the first test of its service Prime air in which, as you may remember, they gave a customer an Amazon TV and a bag of popcorn. One of the peculiarities of this delivery was that literally and contrary to what you might think, it was carried out in the United Kingdom because the FAA had not yet granted the North American company permits for this service to operate on American soil. .

After all this waiting time, Amazon has finally got the FAA to approve that its engineers can carry out tests in the United States, something that could finally take place for the first time this past weekend. Undoubtedly, after a lot of pressure and interest in the status of the regulations, it finally seems that this type of delivery will soon be properly regulated, although, for this, there may still be enough time.

After considerable wait, Amazon was finally able to test its Prime Air service in the United States this weekend.

As a detail, remind you that Amazon Prime Air is a service where the famous company promises to deliver orders in less than 30 minutes from purchase. For this to be carried out we must meet several requirements, on the one hand that the product does not have a weight greater than the 2,3 kilograms while, secondly, we will have to live or that the delivery location is not higher than the 16 kilometers around the warehouse from where the merchandise leaves.

At the moment, the service may be a little limited, at least in terms of distances, but we have to understand that we are facing the first tests from the same that, if it goes well, they will surely make the company continue to develop its idea until it manages to develop drones with a greater flight capacity and above all much more autonomy and range, something from which, on the other hand, we will all benefit, both Amazon buyers as well as drone enthusiasts.
