In this week’s episode, we were delighted to be joined by Nicholas Flom, Executive Director of the Northern Plains UAS Test Site in Grand Forks, North Dakota.

When UAS people think North Dakota, they think Nicholas Flom. He supports the FAA’s BEYOND Program and was appointed by state governor Doug Burgum to co-chair the state’s UAS Detection/Counter UAS Task Force. Flom also participates on the FAA’s Unmanned Aircraft Safety Team, actively contributes to and advises industry groups, and is a voting member of Committee F38 on UAS.

We talk about why North Dakota is well positioned to take unmanned aircraft to the next level, what impact the network has had on the US state and how it can help other states looking to develop networks of their own. Nicholas also talks about the work that has been done so far, and the partnerships that have been established.
