UAVs in the news


Here are two news stories from the training exercise I helped conduct last week in south Texas.  We were training the Texas A&M personnel on how to operate as the ground crew for the UAV system they purchased last year.  They did a great job and it was fun week working with them all week despite the colder than normal temperatures that we had to deal with.  So congratulations to TAMU-CC on successfully completing their first training exercise with their RS-16 UAV system!  Looking forward to more flying in the future!
