The question is, will guac still be extra if it's delivered by drone? Virginia Tech is one of the FAA's six approved drone test sites, and as Bloomberg explains, the university aims to become a leader in new transportation technology research, so the experiment is thought to be a win-win for all parties.
It's a flying burrito, brother!
An FAA rule went into effect last month permitting small commercial drone use, but the regulation does not permit flights over people, at nighttime or beyond the visual line of sight, though drone operators can apply for waivers.

But aside from the obvious awesome nature of the project, it also speaks to a huge milestone for companies hoping to tap into drone delivery services.
This round of testing will also check on the food's packaging to make sure the food is well-protected and that it stays warm. Chipotle's burritos will be put together at a food truck and then loaded on a drone.
"It sounds simple, but it's not", Virginia Tech President Timothy Sands told Bloomberg.
"We are always interested in finding ways to provide our food to customers in ways that are convenient for them-whether that's online ordering, delivery, or catering to accommodate large groups", he said.
Data from the tests will be provided to the FAA to help the agency develop new rules allowing deliveries, Vos said.
According to Bloomberg, the pilot program (pun intended) will kick off later this month at the Blacksburg, Virginia school's campus, with the full blessing of the Federal Aviation Administration, which recently implemented new guidelines created to encourage commercial drone use.
