FAA Shoots Down Amazon's Drone Delivery Plans
Amazon.com says it's still committed to delivering products by drone despite new federal rules that it considers an obstacle to commercial use of unmanned aircraft. Paul Misener, Amazon's vice president for global policy, said the FAA's proposed new rules "wouldn't allow Prime Air to operate in the United States.'' Prime Air is the name of Amazon's developmental program for drone delivery. Misner called for rules that would address Amazon's plan for using drones to deliver packages.
