FAA publishes draft environmental assessment on DFW drone delivery, invites comments

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has published the Draft Environmental Assessment for Wing Aviation proposed package delivery operations in Dallas Fort Worth (DFW), Texas metropolitan area. Wing is seeking to amend its air carrier Operation Specifications (OpSpec) and other FAA approvals necessary to expand UA commercial package delivery operations in Texas.

The public comment period lasts for 30 days and is available to view and download at:


Under the proposed action, Wing will establish a network of up to 25 nests with each nest serving an area with a 6-mile radius. Wing is planning to conduct up to 400 deliveries per day from each nest. Initially, Wing expects to fly considerably less than 400 deliveries per day from each nest and then gradually increase to 400 deliveries per day as consumer demand rises. Even in the locations where the service areas of nests overlap, deliveries would not exceed 400 per day. Each flight would take a package to a customer delivery address before returning to the nest.

Comments must be submitted by 9 October 2023 to 9-FAA-Drone-Environmental@faa.gov  Please reference the Wing DFW Texas Draft EA in the email subject line when sending comments.
