The Federal Aviation Administration has designated some areas of Oregon as test sites for commercial drones. I’ve been wondering why federal action along those lines was needed since remote-controlled aircraft already fly at various sites including the Benton County Aerodrome near Adair Village. (This is not one of the drone test sites. Those are in central Oregon and on the coast.) Nobody was at the aerodrome on the last afternoon of 2013, but you can see in this video that it’s a very well equipped place for flying dr…, uh, radio-controlled planes.
