Prescott eyes selection as site for drone testing

PRESCOTT, Ariz. — Prescott officials want the Yavapai County city to be
considered as a site for federal testing of how to integrate unmanned
aircraft into the nation’s airspace.

That’s despite some residents’ concerns about privacy from unwanted
surveillance.

The Daily Courier reported that the City Council
approved an agreement with the Arizona Commerce Authority to participate in a
pitch for selection as one of the six planned test sites nationally.

Mayor Marlin Kuykendall said it’d be a great industry for the area.
