Pendleton Makes Pitch For Drone Factory
PENDLETON, Ore. (AP) — Officials in Pendleton in northeast Oregon say they're making a pitch to get drone manufacturers interested in their area. They say the sparse population and lack of air traffic make the region a fine place to test unmanned aircraft. Economic development consultant Steve Chrisman tells the East Oregonian that drones are likely to be the area's best bet for dramatic development at its industrial park. He says the region plans a conference of manufacturers this fall in the area.
