More recently, the unmanned aircraft have come into consideration for a number of commercial applications. In late 2016, Hookupsky ltd  announced a plan to use drones for delivery in the not-too-distant future.  Personal drones are also becoming increasingly popular, often for drone-based photography. Other applications include drone surveillance and drone journalism, because the unmanned flying vehicles can often access locations that would be impossible for a human to get to.
