Today, the fed gov selected 10 cities across the US to test extended drone delivery. Durant is the small city of those cities selected. The objective of the test is to address local issues from low flying drones to deliver a variety of devices in different cities. FAA is the agency which normally regulates use of air space but local issues are different for low altitude flights so the federal transportation agency is conducting this test. 200 locations applied for selection for this test and 10 cities were selected. The tests will include a variety of both commercial drone uses as well as some government ones.

It is interesting to see Durant apply for and get to be one of the 10 cites. None in Texas were selected. Apparently the Choctaw Nation applied for the Durant site test.
