The Federation Aviation Administration selected Oregon with Alaska and Hawaii as one of its six drone testing sites.

 

Collins Hemingway lead EDCO's effort to bring drone testing here.

 

"But in some way we've been the little engine that could.  We've been working for four years.  We've gone from being a small player to being one of six major players, after being blessed by the F-A-A.  So in one respect it was very surprising and in another respect it shows it took a lot of work from a lot of people."

 

Hemingway says between 200 and 400 jobs could be coming to the area over the next five years because of the drone testing.

 

The testing is expected to start in the next six months.
