Northwest UAV Flight, Analysis, & System Test (FAST) range completes first test flight

Northwest UAV’s Flight, Analysis, and System Test (FAST) UAV Range in Oregon completed its inaugural flight on 4 September when a quadrotor supplied by Klein Engineering flew just under 1000 feet in a 1 nautical mile radius of airspace. The Certificate of Authorization (COA) obtained by the University of Alaska Fairbanks allows Northwest UAV to operate its own test range under the Pan-Pacific UAS Complex. The range facilitates flights up to 4,000 feet in a 5 nautical mile radius of airspace just 12 miles south of NWUAV’s main campus, which offers a variety of UAV products and services.
