The Federal Aviation Association in the United States has given the green light to Amazon to begin testing its drone delivery service. 

The List

  • It would allow for some ordered products to be delivered in as little as 30 minutes. 
  • Amazon will now begin testing drone delivery across the United States but has not specified where or when. 
  • Some experts believe the drone delivery program has been fast tracked due to the coronavirus pandemic.
