CONROE, Texas — NextGen Aero, organizers of the MODAERO #NextGen Aviation Festival, have partnered with the organizers of this year’s F3Expo to produce “The Drone Experience at MODAERO.”
MODAERO’s founder, Brian Columbus, initiated the partnership after witnessing F3Expo’s events at the Inaugural F3Expo in Atlanta.
“We were blown away by the quality of their event and knew this was something we wanted to do for MODAERO 2016,” said Columbus. “Drones/UASs (Unmanned Aerial Systems) are not just a hobby, they’re a quickly growing segment of aviation. We feel it’s very important to integrate their responsible, practical and entertainment use into the aviation industry. This is the dawn of a new consumer and commercial aerial revolution. There’s no better event to showcase their capabilities and invite pilot collaboration than MODAERO.”
The Drone Experience will be an integral part of the MODAERO festival and will include a drone/UAS exhibitor expo, educational presentations, drone demonstration cage and indoor drone racing.
MODAERO is slated for March 16-19 at Lone Star Executive Airport (KCXO) in Conroe, Texas.
