A company has finally become the first to start regular drone deliveries. Wing, which is an off-shoot of Google’s parent company Alphabet, has received approval from Australia’s Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) to start deliveries and is making the service available in three suburbs of North Canberra. Users of the service can place orders through an app, with delivery made by a drone within a few minutes. Initial businesses who have signed up to participate include a chemist, a bakery, a chocolate shop, a gelateria, a coffee shop and a golfing supplier. The purchases are packaged in a special box, which is flown to the destination and then lowered to customers on a cord.
