Beer Drones

Living in Minnesota, I can understand how this kind of drone would be very helpful to the health and welfare of our local ice fishermen.  Leave it to the FAA to step in and declare a "NO FUN ZONE" surface to 100 feet.  Just in time for the Super Bowl too, how to they expect us to survive out here?


FAA GROUNDS BEER DRONES

AP, 31 Jan 2014


MINNEAPOLIS — A craft brewer had a plan to deliver beer to thirsty ice fishing anglers on a Minnesota lake until the Federal Aviation Administration stepped in and grounded the idea.

Lakemaid Beer would deliver a 12-pack of its lager to anglers on central Minnesota's Lake Mille Lacs using a drone. It would take orders using GPS coordinates.

Lakemaid president Jack Supple tested the idea on Lake Waconia and then posted a video on the brewer's Facebook page. The Star Tribune says that's when the FAA caught wind of the business plan and told Supple his commercial use of an unmanned aircraft isn't permitted.

So for now, the Stevens Point, Wis., brewer will deliver its beer to retailers by land. Lakemaid's promotional tagline is "great fishermen need great beer." It just won't be delivered by air.
