SPRINGFIELD, Ohio (AP) — The center leading Ohio's joint venture with Indiana to develop the region's unmanned aircraft systems industry has its first director.
Gov. John Kasich says Dick Honneywell will lead the Ohio/Indiana Unmanned Aerial Systems and Test Complex based in Springfield in southwest Ohio.
The Springfield News-Sun (http://bit.ly/125Rl0U ) reports the retired Air Force Reserve colonel most recently was vice president of aerospace at the Dayton Development Coalition. The center in Springfield hopes to become one of six national test centers for unmanned aircraft.
The Federal Aviation Administration will select those centers to be used for studying how best to integrate drones into U.S. airspace.
Ohio and Indiana have joined in an effort to win an FAA test site. Springfield was selected as a central location to manage that effort.
