The city of Roswell could soon be home to a drone training facility.

The city has set aside 10 acres near West 19th Street for the project.

An economic impact study shows the drone industry could create more than 100,000 American jobs by 2025.

In New Mexico, that translates to more than $6 million over the next seven years.
