The Federal Aviation Administration says Virginia and five other states have a green light for drone testing. The FAA says Virginia and New York were the only east coast states where teams submitted winning bids. Outgoing Governor Bob McDonnell says Virginia Tech will get money to test unmanned aircraft. Peter Singer is with Washington’s Brookings Institution. He sees the FAA site selection as the first round in a national debate over drones. Most of the chosen sites are west of the Mississippi River. They include places in Texas, Nevada, North Dakota and Alaska.
