14 October, 2015 | The Sphere Drones Blog

SYDNEY, NSW: 14 October 2015 - Delivering medicine to rural health clinics via a drone may just become a thing of the future!

According to The Guardian, using a drone to deliver medicine to rural health clinics has become Federal Aviation Authority-approved in the US. The drone, made by an Australian drone manufacturer, successfully transported 4.5kg of medical supplies within Virginia. 

Using the drone for delivery purposes has become increasingly considered. This delivery has opened up the opportunity to utilise the drone for future deliveries of lifesaving medicines in rural and remote areas.
