"First Successful" Drone Delivery (US)

First Successful Drone Delivery Made in the US

Everyday delivery moves one step closer as Federal Aviation Authority-approved drone successfully deposits medicine to rural health clinic

Samuel Gibbs | July 20, 2015

The first US government-approved drone delivery has successfully transported 4.5kg of medical supplies to a rural health clinic.

The drone, made by Australian drone manufacturer Flirtey, took part in the demonstration, which was approved by the Federal Aviation Authority, in partnership with Nasa on Friday.

[Blogger's note: "First successful drone delivery" needs to be understood in context. Amazon warehouses, for example, use drones internally to move packages around the warehouse.]
