SkyView Aerial Productions LLC attended our very first remote pilots conference. It was held in Dayton Ohio and was sponsored by Sinclair Community Collegeand was hosted byAUVSI (Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International)
The keynote speaker was Mr. Ken Kelley from the FAA. He spoke regarding how the FAA, along with industry leaders are working together to safely integrate unmanned aircraft into the national airspace. Part of his presentation was regarding the certification process for UAS pilots to fly commercially. The last portion of his presentation was a Q & A session; where members of the audience were able to have their questions answered.
There were some notable people at the conference,such as State Representative Rick Perales (District 73), Brian Wynne, President & CEO of AUVSI, along with Deb Norris, Senior VP Workforce Development & Corporate Services, Sinclair Community College.
Our time there was remarkable. We were able to network with likeminded individuals and share our thoughts on how to make this industry safer and more productive for everyone. We left the conference energize and are looking forward to what’s to come.
