DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — A southwest Ohio community college has received federal clearance to fly unmanned aerial vehicles at Wilmington Air Park.
Sinclair Community College says the approval to fly two unmanned aircraft will allow it to partner with commercial and industry interests, to further its research and training efforts. The college has been positioning itself as a leader in an emerging industry, expanding its involvement in education and research about drones.
Sinclair recently invested $1.4 million in additional funding for its Unmanned Aerial Systems program providing training for drone operators and maintenance of drones.
