First Aired August 26, 2023

Unmanned aircraft systems – or UAS – will have lots of uses and that is why Battle Creek is seizing an opportunity to attract such business to the local airport. That's the word from Battle Creek Unlimited CEO Joe Sobieralski.

Sobieralski tells Community Matters what some of those uses are and how preparing the Battle Creek Executive Airport for UAS business is a first for Michigan.
