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!”
This year, under the motto ‘Drones are Good’, 150 simultaneous events will be taking place around the world not only to celebrate flying, but also to educate the public, media, and lawmakers about their positive influence on society. The Academy of Model Aeronautics ‘AMA’ is the day’s leading sponsor, and event activities will include drone racing, aerial photography and videography instruction, as well as search and rescue demonstrations.
