March 25, 2020 - The leading unmanned aircraft system test range in the U.S. may be increasing its support and help in making near-term drone deliveries to areas in urgent need of supplies a reality. Senator John Hoeven, R-N.D., has reached out to the Federal Aviation Administration’s Administer, Stephen Dickson, requesting that the FAA allow the use of drones to deliver supplies to areas in urgent needs. The request by Hoeven is a follow-up to an earlier request by the Northern Plains UAS Test site asking the FAA to consider such operations in the right settings.
