Who We Are

The Pendleton UAS Range (PUR) is a leading partner within the Pan-Pacific UAS Test Range Complex (PPUTRC) under the University of Alaska Fairbanks leadership that was designated by the FAA on Dec 30, 2013. Located in beautiful eastern Oregon, the PUR offers both conventional and unconventional takeoff and landing capability from Eastern Oregon Regional Airport (KPDT). The airport enjoys 347 VFR days per year and can accommodate up to a Boeing 757. In addition to two conventional runways (6,300 ft.; 5,581 ft.), the airport provides a 2,800 foot UAS dedicated strip and a full-service UAS operating area with available dark fiber connections. KPDT offers a broad blend of dissimilar aircraft, including squadrons of Chinook helicopters and Shadow UAS. Beyond the airport the range extends over 14,000 square miles: North to the Columbia River; east over the Blue Mountains and Umatilla National Forest; south into the Elkhorn Mountains; and west outlining the borders of Restricted Area 5701 to allow easy access for specialty testing (Oregon’s only restricted airspace).
