SEATTLE, Wash. – It appears that Amazon is getting serious about using drones for deliveries.

The company is asking the FAA for permission to expand testing on unmanned aircraft.

The online retailer wants to conduct outdoor tests near its headquarters in Seattle.

Right now it can only experiment with drones at government testing sites.

Amazon says its prime air service would deliver packages in 30 minutes or less.

The company hopes to make drone delivery a reality by next year.
