Public meeting set to discuss ND unmanned aircraft test site

GRAND FORKS, N.D. — A public meeting is scheduled to talk about business opportunities and other plans for North Dakota’s unmanned aircraft test site.

Representatives of the Northern Plains UAS Test Site and the Federal Aviation Administration are set to participate in the discussion and answer questions about the site and the future of the industry.

The North Dakota test site is one of six in the nation and the only one that has clearance from the Federal Aviation Administration to fly at night and at higher altitudes. The state is also home to the nation’s first unmanned aircraft business and tech park, which held groundbreaking ceremonies earlier this month.

The meeting is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Alerus Center in Grand Forks, in conjunction with an unmanned aircraft conference.
