Like it or not. Drones are here to stay. They can be used for many different functions, not just the negative connotations that immediately come to all our minds.

Everyone here talks about how hard it is to fly in AK - so to me it makes sense that they should be tested in those extreme conditions. Not just bitter cold, but the unique flying conditions.

If you had to deliver life savings meds in nasty weather, I'd risk a drone over a person. Easier to send a bunch of drones to look for someone lost too. There are many other examples...
