N.Y. Community College to Bolster STEM Studies Through UAS Exemption

Upstate New York-based Mohawk Valley Community College (MVCC) says it was recently granted a Section 333 exemption to commercially fly unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) for photography, videography, inspections, surveying, closed-set motion picture filming, and search-and-rescue operations.

With this authorization, MVCC says, faculty and students will be able to enhance their research and studies in a wide range of courses and activities. MVCC says its Center for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM Center) prepares students in these fields whether they are seeking a one-year certificate, an associate degree, or a transfer to a four-year institution.

The college spans two campuses in Utica and Rome, which is also where Griffiss International Airport is located – the site of a Federal Aviation Administration-designated UAS test site.
