Insitu said Thursday the ScanEagle N202SE will display Boeing Aviation Hangar at the museum’s Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center facility in Chantilly, Virginia.

The unmanned aircraft was the first drone to perform commercial beyond visual line of sight flight in the U.S. national airspace system.

“At a time when the unmanned aviation industry is advancing faster than ever, we take great pride in the pioneering work Insitu has done to help shape this path,” said Ryan Hartman, Insitu president and CEO.
