Drone research flies in northern Nevada

Engineers from the University of Nevada, Reno and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration next month will begin doing as many as five test flights a day of unmanned aerial vehicles at Reno Stead Airport.

The tests mark the ramp up of Nevada’s status as one of six sites authorized by the Federal Aviation Administration to conduct research and trials of UAVs, better known as drones.
