Michigan Loses Drone Site Bid

Michigan has lost out on its bid to become one of six sites across the US that will develop unmanned aircraft systems. It had been hoped Alpena would be one of the sites chosen by the Federal Aviation Administration. But the state has lost out to Virginia, New York, Texas, Nevada, North Dakota and Alaska. Congress had ordered the FAA to conduct research before it allows the large-scale use of drones for commerce, law enforcement and other purposes.
