hands-on training program as early as next year, according to a
report from the Dayton Daily News. The closest approved

National Guard's Camp Atterbury near Columbus, IN.
Sinclair has put more than a year into preparing its application

under the supervision of an instructor.
The college already has a program for airline pilots. It is
working with the nonprofit Unmanned Applications Institute
International based in North Dakota to develop the UAV program.
