Scott Fletcher on Northland UASOver the last two years, Thief River Falls has become an important player in the development of unmanned aircraft technology nationwide.

Last year, Northland Community and Technical College received nearly $5-million from the U.S. Department of Labor to establish the nation’s first unmanned aerial systems maintenance training Center. The first UAS maintenance training classes began in August.

In September of this year, Northland received another $4.7 million dollar Department of Labor grant that will be used to develop another program related to flying planes remotely, from the ground.

Joining us to talk about Northland’s planned certificate in Imagery Analysis is chief operating officer of Northland’s aviation programs, Scott Fletcher.
