Drones Expected To Test Over New York State

Apparently, the FAA has chosen six states to test unmanned drones in/over. And if you guessed New York state, ding ding ding you’re a winner. 

Along with Alaska, Nevada, North Dakota, Texas, and Virginia the FAA says test sites like Griffiss International Airport in Rome will ‘evaluate different aspects of commercial drone use’ as well as ‘air collision avoidance’ according to Metroland.

Privacy, that’s the question right? Good news, the Northeast UAS Airspace Integration Alliance is saying that the FAA has privacy guidelines set in place which will be available to the public at all six test sites.

When will testing start? Testing will begin at sites like Griffiss in the next six months and continue on until February 2017

Even with ‘privacy guidelines’ in place: Is Big Brother watching?
