Hoeven Calls on FAA to Expedite UAS Test Flight Approvals

BISMARCK, N.D. – In a letter sent last week to Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) head Michael Huerta, Senator John Hoeven said the nation’s six designated Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) test sites could be doing more to integrate UAS into the National Air Space.

The senator called on the administrator to expedite approvals to test UAS flights in concurrent air space and take other steps to more fully utilize the sites’ specialized capabilities. Hoeven also asked Huerta to meet with him to discuss these issues and future operations at the test sites.
