Predator Drone at TSTC Waco

Wed Oct 23, 2019 12:36 am

Was driving through Waco on Oct 22 and was certain I saw a Predator drone landing at TSTC Waco. Are they training drone pilots there or was this something else? Hoping someone might know.

Quite possible. They’ve been doing those ops out at San Angelo for quite a while now and with Fort Hood / Robert Gray right down the road it would not surprise me at all.
First class or no class...

A number of organizations, both government and private, are operating predators now. Could be CBP or one of the contract RPA companies. I know of at least one company based in Waco which is operating Predators.
