SPOKANE, Wash. —

Washington is bidding for one of six sites in the nation where the Federal Aviation Administration will test drones.

The testing in Washington would be based at the Moses Lake airport, which has a long runway and a history of aircraft testing for Boeing.

The Spokesman-Review reports ( http://bit.ly/181kE6X) the project would be managed by the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory. The Innovate Washington state agency, Department of Commerce, ports and county economic development groups also are involved

The FAA is expected to choose the sites by the end of the year. They will test unmanned aircraft to come up with guidelines to make sure they don't interfere with private, commercial and military flights.
