FAA

Veterans Airport of Southern Illinois has secured a substantial amount of FAA funding thanks to a local business.

The Williamson County facility and others like it are required to transport at least 10-thousand passengers each year to be eligible for a million dollars in federal funding.

A two-day course at SIU-Carbondale next month will allow drone operators to gain Federal Aviation Administration certification to operate unmanned aircraft systems.
