Brain - Uber says it will start delivering fast food by drone in San Diego this summer
Key Highlights

Deliveries will not be made to customers' houses, says Bloomberg, but instead, will be sent to " designated safe landing zones " where Uber couriers will unload the package by hand and take it to the customer's doorstep

The company is still awaiting approval from the FAA

Back in 2018, the FAA designated San Diego as one of 10 US locations where commercial drone services can be tested (its generally calm and sunny weather was one factor), and Uber has been one of a number of industry partners supplying expertise to the city since then

The San Diego trials will offer valuable information about how to manage this new aerial infrastructure, says Uber, and the company estimates establishing regular deliveries in a handful of markets will take at least three years
