Amazon Developing Drone Based Delivery Service

Amazon Prime Air Drone

Amazon founder and CEO, Jeff Bezos, revealed that the online mega store is developing a delivery-by-drone service, called Amazon Prime Air.

Bezos believes the delivery-by-drone service will be available within 4 to 5 years, and will be able to deliver products 30 to 60 minutes after purchase.

The drone will be able to deliver products weighing up to 5 pounds, which accounts for 86 percent of items that Amazon currently delivers.

Amazon still has to work out safety issues and FAA approvals before the Amazon Prime Air program can be implemented.
