A Drone Just Made the First Legal U.S. Delivery

Commercial drone deliveries took 24 short hops closer to reality last Friday with special clearance from U.S. regulators.

Australian drone startup Flirtey worked with NASA, Virginia Tech, and others, to make a series of flights in a project called “Let’s Fly Wisely”.

The event started with a conventional flight by a fixed-wing aircraft flown by a team from NASA Langley Research Center. The plane carried a container with 24 packages of medical supplies from a pharmacy in Oakwood, Virginia to Lonesome Pine Airport in Wise County, Virginia.
