Sheriff’s Office Launches New Drone Program

Sheriff’s Office Launches New Drone Program
New drone pilots, Deputy Brian Miller, Undersheriff Bill Lawry, Deputy Tyler Hayes, Deputy Danielle Montgomery, Sergeant Brad Kufalk, Sergeant Rudy Maynez, and Sergeant Adam Vallaster.

Over the past year, the Churchill County Sheriff's Office has been working on a new program that will soon take flight. To assist the sheriff's office in certain operations, they have purchased two drones and selected seven pilots for the team. These department members have had to take the FAA unmanned aircraft exam, an in-person exam, and complete an in-house flight school. Congratulations to these seven members for their hard work and dedication to the Churchill County Sheriff’s Office's newly implemented program.

How is the Sheriff getting around the FAA restricted air space regulations surrounding NAS Fallon?

Comment author: Claude EzzellComment text: Paul was one of the most manifest men I have ever met. He was a good friends with my Dad and always had an entertaining story for the occasion. One of my most favorite stories Paul told dated back to the late 60s or early 70s and it revolved around him killing a deer way out in the mountains. Naturally the deer ran down into a deep canyon and died. Knowing that it would take him forever to haul it out he devised an awesome plan. After preparing the deer he drove back to NAS Fallon and rustled up a SAR crew and they flew out and picked up the deer. Of course it was labeled as a training flight but what the hell in those days you could do that sort of thing. Rest in Peace my friend until we meet again!!Comment publication date: 4/11/24, 1:15 PMComment source: Obituary - LCDR Paul N PflimlinComment author: THughesComment text: So sad to hear.
