Trevor Woods started his career in aviation at the University of North Dakota with a Bachelor of Business Administration in Aviation Management, but he’s been flying since he was a teenager, spending his high school years working on obtaining a private pilot’s license. He went on to earn a Master of Business Administration degree while working at UND, doing flight training, which merged into UAS testing, research, and waiver and regulatory submissions to the FAA.
Trevor has been with NPUASTS since its inception, most recently as director of safety, working extensively with the FAA. He was instrumental to North Dakota being selected as one of ten participants in the UAS Integration Pilot Program, now the BEYOND program, participates in the FAA’s Unmanned Aircraft Safety Team, and served as the Lead on the FAA’s BVLOS ARC Working Group 2.1. Trevor also played a pivotal role in the inception of Vantis, North Dakota’s beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) initiative. In 2022, he was the natural choice to take over as executive director and lead the test site into the next stage of making the impossible possible.
