    Edwards AFB requires their pilots and operators to maintain civil licenses to fly these drones/UAV into the NAS. They have a great AeroClub at Edwards for that purpose. Some twenty years ago AIR-100 Wash DC came to a meeting in SoCal to introduce themselves with these vehicles and a decision was made then that these are to be considered “aircraft” regardless if occupied or not and when operated in the NAS that those operators were to be certificated pilots.
