Wed, 23 Apr 2014

Federal Aviation Administration Administrator Michael Huerta has granted Grand Forks the first authorization in the US to allow a test site to begin flying unmanned aircraft. The announcement came following a tour of the UAS educational facilities at the University of North Dakota. Huerta tells RRFN agriculture is one of the more promising areas for unmanned aerial systems. “These aircraft hold great potential for things like surveys and crop dusting, but there are a lot of questions we need to answer. There’s a lot of research we need to do to make sure that as we integrate unmanned aircraft into these uses, that it’s done safely.”
