This holiday season, the number one gift under the tree is going to be a multirotor: large and small, for children young and old. This is a sure sign that our passion for this technology is going mainstream. In the long term, this is great news: the more people who have first-hand experience with these systems, the easier it becomes for us to argue for their safe, beneficial and non-intrusive use in society.
However, in the short term, it means that a quarter of a million novice pilots are about to take to the skies. Here at the Roswell Flight Test Crew, as enthusiasts and proponents for this technology, we feel that we owe it to them — and to ourselves, and to the future of this industry — to do everything we can to help them get started on the right foot.
Therefore, we are launching “Drone for the Holidays,” and we’re hoping that you will join us to offer these new multirotor pilots in your own community a few hours of orientation and basic training.
The goal is a nationwide effort, set to occur on Saturday, January 3, 2015. Whether you’re a local Academy of Model Aeronautics flying club or Drone User Group Network chapter, we hope that you’ll join us to make this project a success.
