UPS has been greenlit by the FAA to start hauling cargo using UAVs or drones to deliver.
“UPS says it immediately launched the first drone delivery flight by any company under what is known as the Federal Aviation Administration’s Part 135 Standard at WakeMed’s hospital campus in Raleigh, N.C. The flight was flown under a government exemption allowing for “beyond visual line of sight” operation.”
The service will be used to haul long-distance cargo using large drone vehicles. While smaller quad-copter delivery drones will be used to deliver packages.
This is both a cutting edge in shipping and delivery using drones. UPS hopes to have next day drone shipping by January of 2020.
“United Parcel Service received federal approval to operate a fleet of drones, giving it broad privileges to expand unmanned package delivery, the shipping giant said Tuesday. The approval will also allow the drones to carry cargo over 55 pounds.”
I could tell you a million reasons why this is not a good idea
1.Drones can’t really fly in wind
2. There is a such thing called airspace and that drone could go fly into a plane
3.They could shoot it down
4. THEY CANT FLY IN RAIN
When planes on the other hand cant shot down unless you have rocket they can fly in rain and they won’t fly into Malaysian airline flight.
