UPS Flight Forward Inc. (UPSFF) and CVS Pharmacy Inc. have successfully completed the first revenue-generating, residential drone deliveries of medical prescriptions from a CVS pharmacy to customers in Cary, North Carolina. One of the people on the receiving end of these landmark deliveries was a CVS customer with limited mobility, which makes it hard for them to make the trip to the store to pick up their prescription. Utilizing a Matternet M2 UAS, the flights launched from a CVS store in Cary. Once the UAS reached its destinations, it lowered the packages to the ground using a cable and a winch while hovering about 20 feet over the properties. The UK CAA has introduced a requirement for drone operators to register their aircraft, and the process includes an online test. The registration is about

AMA Drone Report 11.14.19: DJI Drone-To-Phone, Drone Corridor, Drone Workshop

Also: NOTAM Data Optimization Summit, CASA Warns Drone Pilots, Drones Reveal Iceland Glaciers, SeaWorld Drone Show

Well... we knew this was coming... DJI is now demonstrating a direct drone-to-phone, Wi-Fi based solution to remotely identify airborne drones. DJI’s remote identification solution, developed in collaboration with industry stakeholders and regulators, broadcasts information from drones directly to off-the-shelf mobile phones using existing Wi-Fi protocols. Using a simple app, anyone within radio range of the drone can receive that signal and learn the location, altitude, speed and direction of the drone, as well as an identification number for the drone and the location of the pilot. A state supported 50-mile unmanned traffic management drone corridor, which runs from Central New York to the Mohawk Valley has been completed. The first-in-the-nation corridor is the most advanced

Memory Metals Are Shaping The Evolution Of Aviation

Functional Metal With Unique Properties Can Be Trained To Move On Its Own

In the basement of the Materials and Structures Laboratory at NASA’s Glenn Research Center, a shining machine stands so tall it punches a hole through the drop-out ceiling tiles. It has a robust composition of steel pillars and thick metal plates surrounded by wires, dials and knobs. Together, these provide the structure to test a very slight metal rod, no longer than six inches. It seems like quite the production to hold something so minuscule, but this little metal rod is made of a material called shape-memory alloy—and it’s changing the future of flight.
