In a few short years, we may start to see unmanned aerial systems -- or 'drone planes' -- routinely flying overhead, doing tasks like fire suppression or search and rescue.

To prepare for that day, the FAA plans to name six test sites across the country, by the end of the year.

Utah economic development officials have identified four potential locations in our state, near Promontory, Green River, Delta and Milford.

If a Utah site is chosen, economists say it could generate up to 23,000 new jobs, over the next 10 years.
