Google has launched the first home delivery drone service called ‘Wing’ in Australia, after years of test flights.
Wing will deliver takeaway food, coffee and medicines by drone to about 100 homes in Canberra.
The company has been testing its drones in Australia since 2014 but many residents had complained about the noise.
Australia’s aviation authority gave Wing permission to launch a commercial service after checking its safety record and operational plans.
The AAA says the company posed no risk to residents or other aircraft.
Wing’s drones will deliver small packages which are lowered into the customer’s garden on a length of string but they will only be allowed to fly during the day and not before 08:00 AEST at the weekend.
