UAS Operations @ KVCV

When tuning in to the Southern California Logistics Airport (KVCV) ATIS, it is not uncommon to hear ‘UAS operations underway’. What does this really mean?

Yesterday upon calling tower for an intersection takeoff clearance, I was told to hold short for departing traffic. As I looked towards the end of the runway I saw a v-tail and thought I would be treated to a front row seat of a F/18 performing a viking departure.

Instead this flew by…


Something tells me this won’t be the last time I receive a hold short notice to make way for arriving or departing UAV’s.

Keep calm and drone on,
