Already known DOD-wide as a flexible and accommodating UAS training venue in the U.S., Atterbury-Muscatatuck JMTC has expanded its Unmanned Aircraft (UA) support capability to include FAA Certificate of Authorizations (COAs) which permit UA operations at Muscatatuck Urban Training Complex. Current supported systems include: DOD- Raven, Puma, Shadow and Scan Eagle. Civilian- Dragonflyer.

Camp Atterbury provides the opportunity for aviation units to schedule aviation assets for forward area operations.  The Airfield Operations Office is staffed seven days a week M-F 0800L-2300L, S-S 0800L-1600L and other times as mission requires. If a mission requires 24 hour operations a 72 hour advanced notification must be requested. The staff is here to provide knowledge of local operations and procedures,  customer service, and airspace de-confliction.

Camp Atterbury also provides areas for realistic flight training under VFR (Visual Flight Rules), night and night systems. Included are terrain flight areas, confined areas, and unit supported FARPs (Forward Arming & Refueling Point).
