The skies of Patterson and Tracy could be buzzing in the near future by the sound of drones.
No need for alarm though, the drones are a new development announced this weekend by shopping giant Amazon. The service, called "Prime Air," promises 30 minute package deliveries weighing less than 5 pounds to residents living within 10 miles of a fulfillment center.
The program is not ready for take-off (pun intended) as the program does not match FAA regulations. Changes in the FAA regulations are anticipated as soon as 2015.
Other companies flying with the idea (haha) of drone delivery include Dominos Pizza and Burrito bomber.
