    • 2013 AIAA Policy Symposium: Civilian Applications of UAVs - A California Perspective
      26-28 March 2013, Westlake Hyatt, Westlake Village, California
      Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) spending is expected to almost double over the next decade, from annual worldwide expenditures of $6.6 billion to $11.4 billion, totaling more than $89 billion over the next ten years. Congress has directed the FAA to create six testing sites and a UAV certification plan by 2015. California is expected to earn one of those test sites.
