A drone company is ready to start testing package deliveries in Ohio, but it's not named Amazon or Google.
Workhorse Group Inc. and the University of Cincinnati have been working for years to launch drones from the top of delivery trucks that look like typical UPS or U.S. Postal Service box trucks.
On Wednesday, the Federal Aviation Administration granted the Workhorse team a two-year certificate to test drone deliveries at the Wilmington Air Park in Ohio, a closed airport on land five miles square. A drone nicknamed HorseFly is designed to launch off the top of Workhorse's electric truck and drop a package right at a doorstep.
