Amazon Asks FAA for Permission to Test Drone Delivery

Do the math>

If an amazon drone carrying 5 pounds of chocolate at 50 MPH, crashed into a Google loon carrying 5 pounds of peanut butter at 50 mph, how long would it take for Reece's to file suit?

Dont people know where they are

Is it not possible to supply an address when you are talking to an emergency dispatch officer?

Re: Dont people know where they are

The problem is not when you are at a addressable location (Home, friends house etc), but when you are in an area you are not familiar with. Then only if you have paid attention can you give instructions like...I am between mile markers 16 and 17 on Hwy 38 westbound just past the Historical marker.

Not all locations have addresses.....I'm in Westville Park at the picknick area....they could spend an extra 10 minutes driving around looking for you while you are having that heart attack.

Re: Dont people know where they are

Ahh i see you have a good point there. In New Zealand we just use the rapid number - blue marker pegs on the side of rural roads. If you are 895 River Valley Road, you are 8.95km up river valley road
