DOT Selects 10 Drone Operations Test Sites for Pilot Program


On May 9, the U.S. Department of Transportation announced that it has selected 10 sites to participate in expanded Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) operations. The sites were chosen from 149 proposals made in response to the Federal Aviation Administration’s three-year Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Integration Pilot Program, launched in October 2017. The pilot program is an important step for the FAA to more fully integrate UAV into United States air space.
