Deschutes County Commissioners support allowing the testing of drone aircraft in Central and Southern Oregon. Commissioners will sign a letter of support asking the Congressional delegation to help designate a drone test area between highways 20 the Nevada border. Deschutes County Commissioner Alan Unger likes the jobs this could bring to the area: “Central Oregon has trained people in carbon fiber composites. And that would be more than likely be the type of construction you would use on these types of planes. So we are set to be able to grow our industry here if this industry can take off, and we need to be thinking of these things.”  Unger says if this "testing area" is allowed, local pilots can call a number to see if drones are in the air. Pilots have told other local officials that the FAA historically moves slowly on this requests, so local residents will have plenty of opportunity to comment before a final decision is made.
