US names New York test site for small drones

A DJI Phantom 2 Vision aerial system drone is shown during a convention on January 5, 2014 in Las Vegas, NevadaThe Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announced Thursday a fifth test site for small drones, as it continues to hammer out regulations for their use in US airspace. In a statement, the FAA said researchers at Griffiss airport in Rome, upstate New York would focus on the use of unmanned aerial vehicles, or UAVs, in agricultural applications. “The safe integration of unmanned aircraft into the national airspace is our number one priority, but the agricultural research performed in Rome also may have far-reaching benefits to farmers in New York and across the nation,” said Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx. FAA is authorizing six locations in the United States to test how small, low-flying drones can safely operate within busy American skies, as it continues to draft a comprehensive set of rules to govern their use.
