Look Out, Here Comes The First Ever Drone Olympics
Internet-based drone training company, Drone U, made an exciting announcement that all drone enthusiasts are going to want to hear about. The company announced that they are holding its first ever Fly-In at its Albuquerque headquarters from July 21st- 23rd. While the event is already sold out, it is an awesome opportunity for drone pilots, enthusiasts and advocates to meet, network and compete in a series of professionally-designed “missions”.
Hosting 75 pilots from around the United States, Drone U’s Fly-In is the first event of its kind. Members of the ever-growing drone community will gather to take part in six separate drone competitions, each constructed to highlight key skills involved in drone flight. Prizes will be awarded.
While designed to test each pilot’s flying ability, the competitions are intended to reflect the practical application of drones in real-world situations. Challenges will include race courses, vehicle tracking, and “rescue missions” based around the transportation of life preservers.
It is the goal of Drone U to promote the growth of the drone industry and its participants. The company, which trains pilots of all ages and skill-levels, specializes in helping drone hobbyists transition into the professional world. The membership-based platform provides online training and industry advice to its rapidly growing network of pilots.
