Drones in Seychelles on Hold
December 1, 2012 Leave a comment
Last year, it was reported that the United States was sending drones to the Seychelles for use against militants and pirates. It appears the drone program in the Seychelles has suffered serious setbacks including crash landings attributed to pilot error. As a result, drones have been grounded in the Seychelles since April 2012. Apparently, drones have not been gathering information about pirates for much of 2012 – at least not those drones originating from the Seychelles.
