FAA puts the brakes on illegal `beer-delivering drones`

Washington, Jan. 31 (ANI): The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has reportedly cancelled the prospect of a 'beer-delivering drone' after a promotional video surfaced on YouTube.

Minnesota-based Lakemaid Beer posted a video of a drone ferrying a case of brew to far-flung winter anglers on a frozen lake.

However, the FAA called Lakemaid president Jack Supple and asked him to cancel the project as of now, Cnet reports.

According to the report, drone use for commercial purposes has not been made legal yet, although, the FAA is working on reviewing the norms and is likely to approve drone-based delivery as soon as next year.

Supple was told that he had violated a federal code by using the drone for a commercial purpose, the report added. (ANI)
