Incredible. Backwards step for NC while here in Arizona (home of the Army's UAV school and Aerospace Arizona which manages the UAS testing sites throughout southern Arizona and dedicated to working with the state to bring UAV companies,home of the Unmanned Vehicle University in Phoenix, a brick & mortar full fledged UAV pilot/sensor technician school) the state has become very drone-friendly.

The state saw a good thing with UAS and is making the most out of it. In my little corner of the world, I've been advising police agencies on the potential of UAVs and the administrative process for public COAs, etc. The first agency I started to work with is ready to order their first UAVs.

A bill similar to NC (tying the hands of the cops) languished in comittee.

We are definitely trying to oust this Gov. He has pushed a lot of bad Bills for NC!
