A college in northwest Minnesota is getting a federal grant of nearly $5 million for a center to train maintenance workers for remotely piloted aircraft and ground control systems.

The unmanned aerial systems maintenance training center at Northland Community and Technical College in Thief River Falls is being developed in cooperation with the University of North Dakota and Grand Forks Air Force Base.
