Pretty great, if they’ve experienced it.

Pollsters have asked the public in the U.S. and Europe for their attitudes toward drone delivery a number times in the past ten years. While the results of the surveys vary--support for drone delivery ranging from 23%1 to 50%2 -- all of them have one thing in common: they were conducted among respondents who had never seen, much less received, anything delivered by a drone. Today, researchers at Virginia Tech published the results of the first survey conducted among residents in a city with an active drone delivery service, and the results are quite interesting.

For our customers in Logan & Canberra in Australia, Southwest Virginia in the United States, and Helsinki in Finland, drone delivery has become a regular part of the routine over the past few years. However, for those who we’re not yet able to deliver to, we receive lots of really clever and curious questions about our service and our technology. Starting today - we’re hoping to lift the lid on our service through a new video series called “Ask Wing” -  where we’ll do our best to answer all of your queries. Got something you want answered? Let us know by tagging @Wing on Facebook or Twitter with your question.

Ever wonder what it takes to keep a drone up in the sky? Or how one delivers a package without landing? Or how it flies in the rain? Well, now is your chance. We’re launching a new weekly series called “Ask the Maker” where we’ll pose your questions to Wing’s chief tinkerer, builder, and aviation geek, Adam Woodworth. Adam is uniquely qualified to answer your questions because he’s probably asked most of them himself. In his day job, he’s Wing’s chief technology officer (CTO), responsible for building the drones we use today, which weigh in just under 10lbs, travel up to 70mph, and deliver goods to people’s homes in minutes.




Adam and his team have built hundreds of drone prototypes -- all in service of building aircraft that are safe, efficient, and capable of delivering the things you need. They’ve conducted test flights in sub zero temperatures, conducted impact testing, sprayed drones with fire hoses, and so much more. From a young kid swooshing his model X-Wing around his bedroom, to an older kid still flying his custom built RC X-Wings whenever he can, Adam has a lifelong love and appreciation for aviation and all things that fly. So ask away. Pose your questions on Twitter and keep an eye out for new answers each week.

The OpenSky app is designed to support drone flyers to easily identify where they can and cannot fly across Australia, whether flying for work or for fun. In the past year, drone operators have used OpenSky to plan ahead for their flights, so they can fly with confidence. Glenn, Breanna, Harshil and Amy are just some of the many thousands of Australian drone flyers, both recreational and commercial, using OpenSky to safely access the sky.
