Ohio and Indiana have lost out on their joint bid to become one of the Federal Aviation Administration's test sites for unmanned aircrafts or drones. The FAA on Monday announced six states that will develop test sites and they are Alaska, Nevada, New York, North Dakota, Texas and Virginia.

The FAA said its decisions were based on geography, climate, and location of ground infrastructure, research needs, airspace use, aviation experience and risk. States hoped that winning one of the test locations would attract drone-related businesses and help them become a key player in what some market analysts describe as the most dynamic growth sector of the world aerospace industry this decade.
