Amazon packages delivering to your doorstep from the sky is not a dream anymore!


On Monday, The Federal Aviation Administration granted Amazon approval to deliver packages via drones.


According to Amazon, this approval is an "important step," and added that their company is still testing and flying the drones. No information on this service has been released so far.


The online shopping giant is working on drone delivery service for years, but it was slowed down due to the authorities' restrictions. In December 2013, while giving an interview, Amazon CEO and founder Jeff Bezos said that drones might fly to customer's homes within five years.


Amazon introduced fully-electric self-piloting drones that can carry a load of 5 pounds of goods and can deliver products within 30 minutes by dropping them in a backyard.


Seattle-based Amazon is the third amongst drone delivery services to win approval from the FAA. UPS and Google received approval last year.
