The Hyde County Office of Planning & Economic Development has been working with the North Carolina DOT Division of Aviation , the NextGen Air Transportation ( NGAT ) Center at the Institute for Transportation Research and Education ( ITRE ) at North Carolina State University ( NCSU ) and the North Carolina Northeast Commission on the Unmanned Aerial Vehicle ( UAV ) project at the Hyde County Airport in Engelhard since April 2012 . Much work has been done and many great accomplishments made including the approval by the FAA of an Agricultural Certificate of Authorization ( COA ) to fly UAVs for agricultural purposes in the general vicinity of the Hyde County Airport .
March 21 , 2013 marked the first flight of a UAV under the agricultural COA at the airport by a team from NCSU and Bosh . The two groups partnered to make the first flight possible with support of Hyde County , North Carolina DOT – Aviation , and the Northeast Commission . Flights were scheduled in May and throughout the summer . No flights will be made during waterfowl season .
The Hyde County Office of Planning and Economic Development continues to work with project partners to achieve maximum direct and indirect economic impact including but not limited to job creation , educational outreach and infrastructure improvements through the initiative .

FAA Modernization and Reform Act of 2012 Section 336 of the FAA Modernization and Reform Act of 2012 establishes special rules for model aircraft , including UAVs . It states that when a UAV is flown within five miles of an airport , the operator of the aircraft must provide the airport operator and the airport air traffic control tower with prior notice of the operation . Model aircraft operators flying from a permanent location within five miles of an airport should establish a mutually‐agreed upon operating procedure with the airport operator and the airport air traffic control tower . In June 2014 , the FAA issued an

The roadmap identifies challenges that need to traffic operations with UAVs . The goal of safely segregating , delaying , or diverting other aircraft system presents significant challenges , includin
• Identifying policies and requirements for Air Traffic Control clearances and instruc manned aircraft ;
• Establishing procedures and techniques f of voice and data communication betwee controllers , and other airspace users ;
• Establishing wake vortex and turbulence UAVs with unique characteristics ; and
• Reviewing environmental requirements .
