The big tech companies are certainly planning on it, says Gregory McNeal, a law professor at Pepperdine University and an expert on drones.
"I attended a conference at NASA's Ames field, where a representative from Google stated that when they're operating at scale, they expect at least 100,000 daily flights over a city like Los Angeles," he says.
"I actually think that number's low now, right? If you think of the number of people, post-COVID, who are getting deliveries on a daily basis, many of those deliveries could be accomplished with a drone, small packages, right under five pounds. I expect that number will be much more than 100,000 flights a day."
