Amazon Prime Air HomeMany of you raised questions about how the Amazon drones delivery scheme might work in practice.

Revising the Airspace Model for the Safe Integration of Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems

Determining Safe Access with a Best Equipped, Best-Served Model for Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems
