The Federal Aviation Adminstration today said that Amazon.com could test its new drone delivery system.

According to the FAA all flights must be conducted at 400 feet or below during the day and in clear weather. The drone must always be in sight of the pilot and the pilot should have a licence.

They also need to keep monthy records which are submitted to FAA.

According to the Associated Press Amazon.com has been working on the so-called Prime Air unmanned aircraft project in its research and development labs. But the company says it will take years to advance the technology and for the Federal Aviation Administration to create the necessary rules and regulations.
