Brisbane residents hit out at noisy drone delivery flight service Wing

Furious residents living under noisy drone delivery flight path call for the service to be banned near their homes – but one neighbour LOVES it

  • Residents living in Logan, Brisbane, have hit out at Wing drone delivery service 
  • They claim the drones, which fly over their homes, are causing them stress 
  • However, one resident revealed how he is a fan of the cheap delivery service 

Furious residents have hit out against a drone delivery company and complained that the noise made by the devices is driving them mad. 

Drone delivery services have been introduced in suburbs across Australia but residents in the area of Logan south in Brisbane say the initiative, run by company Wing, is causing them stress. 

Wing said it has made over 75,000 deliveries this year in Logan alone, including fast food and drinks, as well as small grocery items. 

‘I feel annoyed but it actually stresses me sometimes,’ resident Dan Ling told A Current Affair. 

‘You’re sort of chilling out after working all day and you hear the buzzing noise like a very very loud mosquito and it gets louder and louder.

‘We feel like we’re prisoners to this noise. We have to close the front door because you can hear it coming.’

Mr Ling’s house saw eight drones fly over it during his chat with A Current Affair. 

However, Dale Carter, who lives in the same suburb as Mr Ling, says he uses the delivery service every day and loves it.

‘Can of drink and a nice little bottle of water,’ Carter said. ‘For a can of drink it was just $1.25 which is pretty cheap.

‘I don’t see much of a problem with it. If you’ve got the road over here, you hear cars and trucks. It’s no different.’ 

In a statement to A Current Affair, a Wing spokesperson said it’s only received a handful of complaints throughout several years of operation.

Wing also operates in Canberra in the Australian Capital Territory delivering coffee, food, medicine and hardware supplies.

The drones drop off each package to the door.

Last year, Wing paused its service in Canberra after bizarre footage of freak bird attacks emerged.

Wing temporarily halted flights in parts of the Harrison suburb as local bird experts investigated the behaviour of the territorial animals. 

The company was first launched in the ACT in 2019 and became widely popular during the Covid-19 lockdown with 10,000 deliveries carried out.
