Win a DJI Mavic Mini 2 By Enrolling in Our Thanksgiving Giveaway, Lay Offs at Amazon Prime Air, Arizona Drone Pilot Questioned for Filming the BLM Movement, Latest Updates on the Drone Delivery Industry
Our biggest story for today is about drone deliveries and Amazon Prime Air. Archaic drone laws have acted as huge a deterrent as the drone delivery industry as a whole has simply failed to take off.
Many industry stakeholders had false hopes that things would take a turn for the better when Amazon Prime Air finally got permission to make drone deliveries under Part 135.
However, the latest turn of events indicates otherwise as Amazon Prime Air has laid off hundreds of employees.
Jeff Bezos famously commented in 2013 that drone delivery shall be commonplace in 5 years. But does this latest event indicate that we are still a long way off from that day?
Apparently, as the next story indicates, as far as the drone delivery industry is concerned, things are far more progressive in other countries. F-drones became the first-ever company to make night drone delivery in Singapore.
