?his is another milestone in our effort to change the traditional speed of government,?said FAA Administrator Michael Huerta. ?xpanding the authorized airspace for these operations means government and industry can carry out unmanned aircraft missions more quickly and with less red tape.?/blockquote>

Wendell was a Land Surveyor for 26 years, then moved on to building websites for his second career. But he never lost sight of the surveying community and the other disciplines related to surveying. He's purposely stayed involved in the surveying industry because he has always been — and will continue to be — a Land Surveyor at heart.
