If you have a drone then you’re going to want to participate In the The third annual National Drone Safety Awareness Week which will take place on Sept. 13 until the 19th. Moving forward with the FAA continuing to integrate drones into the National Airspace System, one of the most important details will be ensuring drone pilots understand the responsibilities involved with flying safely. Delivery drone company Wing informs the community that they have almost achieved 100,000 customer deliveries.

The company also operates in Finland and the US, where they have made about 50,000 deliveries to date. Startup Dawn Aerospace has completed five test flights of its Mk-II Aurora spaceplane.

Flights were maxed out at 3,400 feet, however, as this allowed the team to capture “extensive data enabling further R&D on the capability of Mk-II.
