K-State Polytech to Fly Unmanned Aircraft After Dark

KSAL StaffJune 23, 2017

Kansas State University’s Polytechnic Campus in Salina is going to be flying unmanned aircraft systems after dark.

The school announced Thursday that the Federal Aviation Administration granted it a waiver to federal law regulating the unmanned systems, often called drones. Generally, flying the unmanned aircraft is not allowed at night.

The night flights will be conducted for research, commercial flight training courses and as in the curriculum of the UAS degree program.
