Amazon is getting serious about using drones for deliveries. It's seeking permission from the government to expand testing on unmanned aircraft's.

The online retailer has asked the Federal Aviation Administration to conduct outdoor tests near its Seattle headquarters. Right now it can only experiment with drones on government testing sites.

Amazon says its prime air service will deliver packages in 30 minutes or less and one day, seeing amazon drones will be as normal as seeing mail trucks.

They hope to make drone delivery a reality by 2015.
