I would like to know what country will be treated as experimental field. Not so funny thing considering Senat's CIA secret prisons report...

The FAA can issue a NOTAMs and TFRs for various temporary flight operations, they do it all the time for everything from sporting events to rocket launches (like hobby/amateur types). Not sure why they can't also allow them for UAV use. That way companies like Amazon can request to use a small chunk of airspace without worrying about running into other aircraft.

They might buy their own private island and test them.

Nah, it's probably cheaper to just buy a couple of Senators instead.

I am starting to think amazon will soon enter directly in the "consumer drone" market, like gopro announced some times ago, with some product like dji pahantom or parrot/sensefly bebop,

They can't possibly be still so "barking mad" about this drone delivery thing....

They have already advertised the jobs in Cambridge UK, the USA is 10 years behind the rest of the world.

They recently posted jobs for Prime Air in Seattle as well.
