Drone delivery is a topic that is frequently discussed. Both Google and Amazon have been leading the charge forward and lobbying for drone delivery friendly rules and regulations. Now, Google has gone on record with a timeline, they expect to “begin delivering packages to customers by unmanned aircraft sometime in 2017.”

Is 2017 a reasonable target? The answer is yes. I believe by 2017 that the rules and regulations that are preventing drone delivery today will be updated or amended. We already have the technology, now we just need the laws to catch up.

Google, which hopes to revolutionize consumer deliveries via drone, expects to begin delivering packages to customers by unmanned aircraft sometime in 2017, an executive said on Monday.

“Our goal is to have commercial business up and running in 2017,” David Vos, the project lead for Google’s Project Wing, told an audience at an air traffic control convention outside Washington.
