FAA Grounds Beer-Delivering Drone


The Minnesota-based Lakemaid Beer Company posted a YouTube promotional video of a drone ferrying a case of beer to some fishermen on a frozen lake. After the video was posted on YouTube it got the attention of local media. The Federal Aviation Administration promptly gave the Lakemaid president a call and told him to stop.

The FAA is currently reviewing whether to allow commercial companies to deliver goods via drones. A decision is not expected until next year.

Jack Supple, President of Lakemaid told the New York Daily News. “They’re not too happy with me.” Check out the original video below:
