It could breath life back into Central Oregon's ailing aviation industry.   That’s the hope of Collins Hemingway, who is the Chairman of the Aviation Recruitment Committee for the Economic Development for Central Oregon (EDCO). They are trying to get a specific test area designated east of Bend for remote control or drone aircraft. “When we started talking to U.A.S. manufacturers, they all said the same thing. There is a severe lack of test areas for those aircraft. Any region that could somehow come up with one would have an advantage in getting business to come their way.” Hemingway says the vast area from Burns to Brothers and south to the Nevada border is already used by military pilots. He would like to see it designated so drone manufacturers could use it for testing when the military isn't using it. Local Congressman says the proposal would have more credibility if local government supports it. The Bend City Council will be asked to sign a letter of support at tonight's meeting.
