The project logo Division of Aviation: UAS Integration Pilot Program Community Survey

In May 2018, the Federal Aviation Administration selected the N.C. Department of Transportation as one of 10 participants in its Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Integration Pilot Program. Through this initiative NCDOT plans to provide commercial drone delivery service for on-demand food delivery and to set up a network of medical distribution centers that can use drones to make medical deliveries. This will test drone operations that go beyond a pilot’s visual line of sight, but more importantly, it will help improve healthcare access for all North Carolinians. 

NCDOT and its partners begain making medical package delivery flights on the campus of WakeMed Hospital in Raleigh in early 2019.  The next phase of the program, food delivery in Holly Springs, is in the works and should launch during the second half of 2019.
