The three-day event is a “whole family” experience featuring opportunities to learn about, fly and buy model aircraft and drones, according to AMA officials.
The event will include a hundred exhibitors, as well ongoing events, such as the Drone Camp, which includes Try-N-Fly, hands-on workshops for ages 7 to 19 to learn how to build, set-up, fly and even do tricks with a drone. Reserve your spot for a Saturday or Sunday session in advance.
Also offered will be Commercial UAS Training: A how-to course to help prepare commercial drone pilots for the FAA’s Part 107 required remote pilot test.
Also offered will be Public Safety Training, a learning session to provide public safety officers with the tools they need to use UAS technology effectively in their jobs.
