Amazon is preparing to start deliveries of its retail products to its customers by drone. The first areas chosen are Lockeford, in California, and College Station, in Texas. The world's largest online retailer says 'hundreds of residents have expressed interest in receiving their Amazon orders via drone', and the company has built new facilities to support the expansion into the air. The company's drone service is called Amazon Prime Air, one of only three companies given certificates by the Federal Aviation Authority to operate drone deliveries.
