International Drone Day 2016

International Drone Day 2016

Over 40,000 drones are sold each and every month, people love flying them however many people fear drones and work to pass laws banning drones.

If nothing is done, the probable almost certain future is that there will be less and less places to legally fly and the world will loose out on the many amazing things drones can do for the world.

So we created a day to celebrate drones and their uses and to educate the media, public and local governments about the many good things drones are used for. International Drone Day creates an enormous  opportunity for everyone on one day to create a day of positive news stories around drones. This allows both the public and lawmakers the chance to really see that Drones are good for what might be the first time.

On International Drone Day 2015 40,000 people in 100 countries and across 150 teams showed the world that drones are good. The 2nd annual International Drone Day, or International Drone Day 2016, is right around the corner! This event is set to take place on Saturday, May 7 2016, with the main International Drone Day event located in San Diego, Ca.
