Why Oklahoma May Be the Next Proving Grounds for Drones: Coming May 26th

Can an oil state become a new hub for aerospace? A remote section of southeast Oklahoma aims to craft the future of unmanned aviation, and Drones in America is taking a visit.

On a special installment, host Grant Guillot takes a visit to the Choctaw Nation UAS Beyond test site to see how they are working with private industry and state regulators to push the boundaries of the drone industry. Among the proponents of the project is Speaker Charles McCall of the Oklahoma House of State Representatives.

The one-of-a kind-facility is located deep in the heart of the Choctaw Nation on land that has not ever been disrupted. Over the next decade, the site will see massive investments in building multiple facilities and a runway, making way for tremendous aerospace research to occur there.

“All kinds of operations are performed here for us to test [advances in] drone technology. This is what we’re calling phase zero of our test site. This is the initial, temporary facility. You have amazing terrain diversity and this pristine property, where we can simulate all sorts of areas and conditions,” said James Grimsley, Executive Director, Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma.

The full episode will premier live on MarketScale at noon Eastern/11 a.m. Central on May 26 right here!
