FAA Set to Approve First Drone Airline License

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is expected to award its first license to operate a drone airline in May. Last year, the FAA determined that large-scale commercial package delivery drone operations would require certain safety and economic certification standards like other licensed U.S. airlines. The FAA has not yet announced which company will receive that certificate,  but to date, the only air carrier certificate application for a drone carrier listed on the applicant website has come from Wing Aviation LLC, which is a subsidiary of Google’s parent, Alphabet, Inc. We will watch the FAA’s press releases for more information on this new venture in the drone delivery industry.
