Ride Along As A Drone Delivers A Pizza To A Skyscraper In Mumbai [Video]

Capture

Francesco’s Pizzeria has a reputation for delicious thin-crust pizza, but they’re now known more for their delivery than their food. The restaurant recently made a delivery by drone in order to avoid the city’s terrible traffic. It might make their customers happy, but the authorities have other thoughts on the matter. According to the BBC:

The city police now say they’re checking whether the restaurant asked permission from the civil aviation authorities. “As per norms, permission must be taken for flying any such object,” an air traffic control official says. A local police chief told the told the PTI news agency: “We are very sensitive towards anything that flies in the sky with the help of remote control.” Indian security forces are nervous about the possibility of terror attacks using paragliders or drones.

This was supposedly just a one-shot deal where a pizza was delivered to a friend of the CEO who lives about a mile away from the shop, but they’re not ruling out the possibility of delivering pizzas this way in the future.
