FAA Administrator Michael Huerta will visit Grand Forks and Williston on Monday with Sens. Heidi Heitkamp and John Hoeven, according to a press release.

“In North Dakota, aviation is drastically growing — whether at our groundbreaking UAS facilities or at our airports in western North Dakota,” the senators wrote in the release.

“We’re excited to show off the great work being done in North Dakota and hope to reinforce why our state needs more support for infrastructure to keep up with demand.”

The group will visit the University of North Dakota at approximately 10:15 a.m. CDT to tour the unmanned aerial systems facilities in Grand Forks. Rep. Kevin Cramer, Gov. Jack Dalrymple, Lt. Gov. Drew Wrigley and university administrators will join Heitkamp, Hoeven and Huerta for a roundtable discussion.

The group will then travel to Williston to tour the city’s airport at 2 p.m. Officials from Dickinson, Williston, Minot and Bismarck will join them for a roundtable discussion on the growth in western North Dakota and its impacts on airports.
