Consumer drone delivery of packages on the way

(NBC News Channel) -- Consumers could soon be receiving their packages by commercial drones.

According to the Wall Street Journal, drones are expected to begin limited package deliveries right to your doorstep within months.

At least ten pilot programs approved by the FAA, possibly including package delivery, are scheduled to start by may.

However, the green light could be delayed if proponents can't overcome lingering concerns about safety and security, as well as regulatory restrictions.
