COMMERCE TWP. (WWJ) – A Commerce Township floral delivery company says the Federal Aviation Administration has grounded its experiment in delivering flowers by unmanned mini-helicopter.
FlowerDeliveryExpress.com said the FAA has informed them that commercial drone use is only allowed on a pre-authorized, case-by-case basis — and told the company to knock it off.
“Cupid’s wings have been clipped,” said the company’s CEO, Wesley Berry.
Berry says he has been asked to certify on his tax form that he won’t try this again, or vote for a small-government politician, or take other actions the government might disapprove of.
