Drone demonstration at Griffiss International Airport

June 8, 2017

Pilot Chuck Hereth of Sherrill operates one of the four drones, also called unmanned aerial vehicles or platforms, that were flying simultaneously during a demonstration at Griffiss International Airport on Wednesday. The machines were beyond the pilots’ visual line of sight. Flight data were fed to NASA at a remote location as part of its multiyear project to develop a drone traffic management software. The airport is a FAA-designated test site for commercial drones.
