Seattle-based eCommerce Colossus is developing drones as part of its massive investment in a logistics network to deliver faster purchases to consumers.

Amazon Vice President David Carbon has responded that his is a significant step forward for Cindy Prime Air and a sign of confidence in Amazon’s operating and safety procedures for an autonomous drone delivery service that will one day the package will reach our customers worldwide.

Amazon plans to use this certification to test consumers using fully electric drones to deliver goods. There is evidence to prove that drone operations are safe.

The package delivery giant UPS received U.S. regulatory approval to operate the “drone airline” late last year and plans to expand its air operations in healthcare and other areas.

UPS said at the time that it had a full certification from the FAA, which allowed it to fly an unlimited number of drones with an unlimited number of remote operators.

From new startups to big tech companies like Google Parent Alphabet, several companies are working on providing autonomous drones.

According to the company’s website, the wing team has completed its first real-world delivery in 2014 in rural Australia, where they successfully delivered first aid to farmers, candy bars, dog treats and water delivery. Two years later, wing drones were used to deliver British to students at a University of  Virginia.
