BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The head of the Federal Aviation Administration is slated to visit North Dakota.

The state’s congressional delegation says FAA Administrator Michael Huerta will make stops in Grand Forks and Williston on Tuesday to review North Dakota’s growing unmanned aircraft industry and get a firsthand look at airport infrastructure needs in the western oil patch.

The FAA late last year named North Dakota as one of six states that will be test sites for integrating drones into civilian airspace.
