Welcome to the "World of Drones" you weekly news resource on all things drone-related. 

The race to everyday drone deliveries continues. Retail giant, Walmart, is beginning their drone delivery pilot program this summer along the Arkansas and Missouri border. The retailer partnered with drone provider Zipline International to operate out of its Pea Ridge store. A representative from Walmart says the Zipline drone could service a 50-mile radius and make a delivery to customers in under an hour. They hope to make 15 deliveries a day during the pilot program.

Speaking of drone deliveries…Restaurant chain Pizza Hut will start drone delivery trials this summer in Israel. Pizza Hut plans to use mini-aircrafts to deliver batches of orders to delivery drivers who will then bring the food to the customers’ homes. Software company, Dragontail System, will manage the drone trial which will allow the restaurant to reach 7000 more households than usual.
