The Wall Street Journal reports that according to federal and industry officials, commercial UAVs are expected to begin limited deliveries in the US within months. Recent commercial UAV progress stems from closer cooperation between the government and companies including Amazon. However, the launch of commercial drones may be delayed by security concerns from law enforcement agencies. In addition, FAA managers need to address legislative and regulatory restrictions, such as pilot training requirements. Gur Kimchi of Prime Air expressed optimism that the necessary approvals for commercial drones would be established by 2019.
