I am in Civil Air Patrol. We do not have any drones, But what we do have are a few Cessna 172s set up to fly as trainers for drone pilots. It is flown with pilots on board while the drone crew on the ground flies the plane remotely.
That way the Air Force doesn't have to worry about losing drones on training missions and if something goes wrong on the ground, the pilots in the plane can take over.
