This Saturday, May 6th, is the third annual celebration of all things drone. It follows the success of the first International Drone Day in 2015, which saw over 40,000 people in 150 countries take part.
Drones continue to be an often controversial topic, and so International Drone Day 2017 is set to be even larger than last year. Hundreds of teams throughout the world will hold events to educate those outside of the drone community about the many positive ways in which drones are used to better society. The mantra of those taking part is “Drones are Good!”
In partnership with the Academy of Model Aeronautics ‘AMA’, International Drone Day event activities vary by team and include drone racing, aerial photography and videography instruction, and search and rescue demonstrations. All events are open to the public and press, with photographs, filming and interviews welcome.
We would love you to attend an International Drone Day event on Saturday May 6th. The full list of events is located at internationaldroneday.
