Drones are a fairly common sight in Arizona’s desert skies. In fact, Arizona has the fifth most approved drone operation applications of any state, according to a report by the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International. Only California (70), Texas (46), Florida (40), and Illinois (18), have more approved applications. However, each of those states have much larger populations than Arizona. Of the 17 approved drone applications in Arizona, seven of them pertain to the real estate sector.

Dr. Timothy Amukele said that the purpose of the study is to find out if blood maintains its necessary quality after being transferred by a drone. Also, the government of Maharashtra, which is located in west-central India, is inquiring about the use of drones in its capital of Mumbai.
