The relationship between Amazon and the US has undoubtedly become strained.
Although not long ago, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) approved an “experimental” license allowing the company to advance commercially in “research and development” of drones now, the FAA has announced that it will establish a new regulation, complicating plans for the online giant to deliver products.
“We innovate so rapidly that legislation is obsolete”, said Paul Misener, Vice President of Amazon, following the announcement of the FAA to perform changes in their current policy for regulating commercial drones in the US.
The problem, says the government, is that not only Amazon, but many companies are beginning to apply for this FAA permit and they are seeing the need to renew the rules.
Folks at Anastasia Date have learned that the purpose of the Amazon drones is to deliver packages, within 30 minutes, using these small unmanned aircraf, but for this to happen, Amazon needs a release, something that irritates them because they believe the FAA is too slow.
It takes the FAA between 18 and 24 months to approve and issue a permit.
“The American standards are more stringent than in the UK, where we also conduct tests,” said Misener. “The permit simply takes too long,” he added.
