Holly Springs residents may soon have drones delivering dinner

HOLLY SPRINGS, N.C. (WTVD) -- Food delivery drones will soon be buzzing over southern Wake County.

The FAA has approved a delivery route in Holly Springs.

The drone service will be operated by Flytrex and Causey Aviation Unmanned.

The drones will fly along a single delivery route from Holly Springs Towne Center to Ting Park.

The flight path crosses over Highway 55.

The drones will fly primarily over unpopulated areas and will avoid adjacent neighborhoods, according to Causey Aviation.

"We have been working diligently with the FAA to adhere to the highest standards of safety," said Yariv Bash, CEO and Co-Founder of Flytrex in a statement. "We are thrilled to have been chosen to work so closely with the FAA to help this pilot take off. This is just the beginning as we expand the possibilities of sky-bound delivery."

The companies have not announced a launch date for the Holly Springs food delivery drones.
