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.

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
