- Talks have already begun between NJIT/NJII and Cape May County officials about continuing use of the Cape May airport. Freeholder Will Morey, a private pilot and a strong advocate of drone technology, said there is "full support" by the county and the Delaware River & Bay Authority for testing at the airport. "The spin-off effects are employment and jobs - very attractive jobs," he said.
- U.S. Rep. Frank LoBiondo, R-2nd, also views drone technology as a way to boost economic development. He said thousands of jobs and billions of dollars in economic impact are possible through commercial use of unmanned aircraft.
