Drone Delivers Medicine To Rural Area

19 Jul

-FROM THE WALL STREET JOURNAL-

Under Goverment Approved Demonstration.

“A pop-up health clinic in rural Virginia received deliveries of medicine from a drone Friday, the first government-approved drone delivery in the U.S.

But the orchestrated event also highlighted the hurdles that remain before such deliveries become everyday occurrences in U.S. skies, as envisioned by Amazon.com Inc.and Google Inc.

A manned aircraft carried the packages most of the way, and the flight plan originally called for the drone to make six round trips to carry a total of 10 pounds. But after two successful deliveries, officials decided to send the rest of the payload in one flight.”
