Amazon has been awarded a patent for a giant flying warehouse that acts as a launchpad for drones to deliver items within minutes. The U.S. e-commerce giant described plans for an “airborne fulfillment center” (AFC) such as an airship or blimp that would float at an altitude of around 45,000.
When a customer places an order, a drone or unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) will fly down and deliver the package. Amazon's filing explains that the blimp would remain in the air and be refueled and replenished using a shuttle.
If this plan saw the light of day, Amazon would likely need regulatory approval from aviation authorities which could be complex. The patent filing was awarded in April this year but only circulated this week after CB Insights analyst Zoe Levitt found the document and tweeted it.
In July, a patent showed how Amazon was thinking about tall buildings and structures such as lampposts or churches as docking stations for drones to recharge. Amazon successfully trialed its first delivery by drone in the U.K. earlier this month and is pushing ahead with plans to make this widely available.

You pick up deliveries from Amazon ’s warehouses and then drop them at the customer’s home or office. Using the Amazon Flex app, you can schedule the delivery blocks that you want to work ahead of time.
Overall, most drivers speak incredibly highly of the pay with Amazon Flex. You can work whenever you want and get a lot of blocks in the beginning.” Current Driver from Newark, CA: “Set my own hours.
Let’s take a look at a few examples of how many drivers report making hourly: Former Driver from San Diego, CA: “The pay is good if you drive a gas-efficient car.
I averaged $20-$25 an hour.” Current Driver from Everett, WA: “Pay is good, around $20-25/hr in Seattle area.” Current Driver (unspecified location): Pay is great, around $25/hr in San Francisco area.” But, interestingly, you can actually earn more than that, even though Amazon doesn’t state that on the Flex website.
According to numerous current and former Flex drivers, Amazon pays you the same amount per delivery block, no matter how long it takes you to complete. As you can see, you can earn a pretty great rate per hour delivering stuff with Amazon Flex.
One driver says: “Gotta constantly check the app, blocks go fast.” Obviously, the more shift blocks you pick up, the more money you’ll make.
Try to finish your deliveries in less time than your shift block As we mentioned above, one of the best aspects of driving for Flex is that Amazon pays you for your whole shift, regardless of how quickly you complete your deliveries. Current Driver from Dallas, TX: “Easy job sometimes the 3-hour blocks you are assigned can be finished in half the time but you still get the same pay rate no matter how long it took.” Current Driver from Salt Lake City, UT: “The holiday season it is really really wonderful money 2-3 shifts a day coming home with lots of extra cash in your pockets.
For the most part, driver reviews for Flex are really positive, with many stating the same pros that we have in this section. Some drivers say that Amazon doesn’t provide much advice when a customer isn’t home, for example.
