All these distractions going on are allowing big players to make massive moves. The media is constantly distracting us with their circus while in the background the true things that matter are being decided on between people of like interests before they can gain enough public scrutiny to be questioned & debated or opposed.

On Aug 31st Amazon got approval by FAA to allow for drone deliveries. Within weeks a former NSA director & CIA chief has joined their board of directors. Take note of his former assignments/accomplishments. If this doesn’t make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up, not sure what will - this is insanity!

Regardless if the position was a payoff for his influence getting this through doesn’t matter much at this point, we now have a company that has far more power than any ever should. Between the % of the web hosted on AWS, Echo cams/bugs, and now drones flying over our properties in the near future has very serious implications.

Snippet in the article from a former colleague -


We jokingly referred to him as Emperor Alexander—with good cause, because whatever Keith wants, Keith gets," one former senior CIA official told Wired. "We would sit back literally in awe of what he was able to get from Congress, from the White House, and at the expense of everybody else.

Of course these drones will not have camera and other things that snoop us out, no way.

Sophisticated radars, LIDAR and sensors on the drones meshed with other datastreams augmented by cloud driven AI will give a pretty comprehensive insight to any area.

Imagine the experience and knowledge this former agency guy is bringing to the table...

Wing Aviation (Google) got its Standard Part 135 certificate for drone service last October. UPS got theirs in September.

A Part 135 certificate is the start, however. They often also need authorization to operate in in particular airspaces.

The FAA issues air carrier certificates to U.S. applicants based on the type of services they plan to provide and where they want to conduct their operations. Operators must obtain airspace authorizations and air carrier or operating certificates before they can begin operations.

Wing Aviation seems to be a subsidiary of "Alphabet Inc." from what I could find. They are just toying with us with that name - just another front company. Wasn't aware these other contracts were awarded, thanks for the info.

I don't think this will work in big cities, probably for rural areas.

If they're relying on google maps, some deliveries won't make it.

Which is Google, mostly.

I just dont see this going well. I can see drones making deliveries being taken down with sling shots or other means so the goods can be pilfered.

Or just being shot down, because some people do not want drones flying around their house. Period.

Discharging a firearm into the air isn't going to end well for anyone. Since the data will be fed directly into the hive I imagine in rural areas they will know whose property it went dark over. An investigation resulting in large fines & jail time will follow since these will be considered FAA violations and usually carry more weight behind the punishment.

The drones will most likely have mic arrays (w/ noise cancelled motor/prop wash) that will be able to pinpoint direction and approx distance as one purpose among many others. This will be the excuse used to have them on there.

In cities I could see neighbors turning you in because they want their drone delivery service and could care less about the principle of privacy or concept of peace & quiet.
