Initially, drone delivery is offered free of charge to early customers who must sign up for the & # 39; Early Flyer & # 39; program.

They need to download the Wing app on their mobile phones, somewhat similar to other food delivery apps, to place an order.

The expansion of Wing's activities followed a test delivery to 100 houses in Canberra since April.

The company has recently received permission to spend in more suburbs in the ACT.

Wing chief executive James Ryan Burgess said the company had plans to launch it in more Australian regions in the future.

Project Wing started testing burrito deliveries in the US state of Virginia for the first time in 2016 and then moved its test site to Southeast Australia last year.

Although the scheme has proved to be a success for many, neighbors of some customers in the Canberra suburb of Bonython had complaints.

Some had problems with the sound, others say the drones frighten their dogs and a woman said she was coming home to find hot chocolate that she had not ordered outside of her house after a customer had entered the wrong address for a delivery.

& # 39; Based on that feedback, we have developed new propellers and engines to make our system quieter & # 39 ;, said Mr. Burgess Brisbane Times

& # 39; It has really changed the tone, drones are normally quite high and we have changed the tone to lower it to match the sound that people are more familiar with.

& # 39; When we made the switch to the quieter drone, we saw the feedback shift from complaints to people who wanted to use the service. & # 39;

Wings flies with the quieter drones in Logan, but the services are limited only during the day, just like in Canberra.

Wing has been piloting its drones since April this year to 100 homes on the outskirts of Crace, Palmerston and Franklin in Canberra
