Congressman Richard Hanna is urging the Federal Aviation Administration to speed up progress on integrating unmanned aircraft systems into the national airspace.

In a letter to FAA Administrator Michael Huerta, Hanna also outlined his concerns with test site delays.

Hanna noted that two test sites have yet to begin testing, including one at Griffiss International Airport in Rome.

Griffiss is home to the Northeast UAS Airspace Integration Research Alliance - or NUAIR - which was selected in December 2013 as one of the FAA's six nationwide test sites.

It awaits operational clearance from the FAA.
