The Ohio/Indiana Unmanned Aircraft Systems Center
Ohio skies are shaping up to be a little bit busier in 2016, following the Federal Aviation Administration’s approval of several drone projects in the state.
The Ohio/Indiana Unmanned Aircraft Systems Center announced this week that the FAA had granted it an exemption allowing the center to use
unmanned-aircraft systems, commonly known as drones. The exemption allows the UASC — a joint venture between Ohio and Indiana to support unmanned flight operations for government and other agencies and to advance drone commercialization — to carry out drone projects focusing on agriculture, infrastructure, research, development and other areas.
In addition to the exemption, which is needed for any commercial use of drones, the UASC also received five certificates of authorization, which are for public entities and grant the use of a specific type of aircraft in a limited area for a particular purpose, said UASC Chief of Staff David Gallagher.
