CINCINNATI -- Twenty-four states, including Ohio, are in the running to become a drone testing area.
Wilmington is one of the possible new locations for drone testing in the U.S. The government is reviewing applications and plans to approve six test site applications for Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) by December.
"This Air Park is an asset to all of southwest Ohio when it comes to aviation and research and development," said Riley.
More UAVs or drones are coming and Wilmington's mayor says that it is something that the public needs to accept.
"It's hard to tell people that this is something that's already happening and that you're going to have to get used to it, but it's already happening. People just need to become acclimated to the fact," said Riley.
