Amazon's Drone Delivery Service

Ready to take to the skies?

One way to do that would be by going to work for the Amazon company. Amazon is looking for engineers to help test and develop its drone delivery service. We told you before how they want to employ unmanned drones, which look like toy helicopters, to deliver packages to homes and businesses.

Now the delivery service is looking for pilots with five years of experience flying drones and some experience with airplanes.

There is a catch though.

The type of drones proposed by the head of Amazon aren't yet legal for private use. But there is a chance that the federal aviation rules could change in 2015.
