Because Idaho was not one of the 7 sites selected by the FAA for UAS or drone testing many people believe its over for Idaho. Well think again or better yet come and hear for yourself exactly where we are in the big picture.

IDA featured speaker will be Dave Holloway from Empire Aerospace who will be reporting on the status of the Idaho UAS Industry.
