    “Cupid’s wings have been clipped,” said the company’s CEO, Wesley Berry.

    Berry said he agreed with the FAA’s characterization of delivery drones as “flying food processors” and that drone delivery operators probably need regulation — like training to avoid mishaps and insurance should they occur.

    Berry said the FAA didn't tell him when they might come up with regulations that would allow drone delivery — but said the FAA told him it is “actively working on it. This technology is here to stay. When the time is right, we’ll be ready for orders to be delivered, not by an address, but by GPS coordinates. It’s exciting to plan the future of the business based on this emerging technology.

    It's coming, greeeeat...
