Governor Cuomo Announces Drone Corridor from Griffiss to Syracuse
Governor Andrew Cuomo has announced a $30 million dollar investment from the state for a drone corridor from Griffiss International Airport in Rome to Syracuse. Cuomo says this could become a trillion-dollar industry.
According to a release from the Governor's office,
Within the 50-mile corridor, strategic investments will accelerate industry growth by supporting emerging uses of Unmanned Aircraft Systems in key Central New York industries, including agriculture and forest management, transportation and logistics, media and film development, utilities and infrastructure, and public safety.
Drone and Unmanned Aircraft Systems are already being tested currently in Rome.
