Using drones for medical supply delivery would make it easier to deliver medical supplies to remote areas, emergency sites, or disaster-stricken areas that are cut off from roads. This could save lives and improve medical care.
U.S. airspace is already crowded, and allowing the use of drones use to deliver medical supplies — particularly non-urgent supplies — could needlessly add to congestion. It’d be better to wait for the FAA to rule on the use of medical drones.
