DRONE SAFETY AWARENESS WEEKEND TO TAKE PLACE AT FARNBOROUGH

Share This Press Release:

29 Mar 2016

The CAA, NATS and ARPAS have joined forces with the UK Drone Show and Farnborough International Airshow to create a Drone Safety Awareness Weekend to be hosted during the public weekend of the Farnborough International Airshow. (16th – 17th July 2016).

Following an increasing number of incidents involving public drone flying, the purpose of the Drone Safety Awareness Weekend is to educate recreational drone pilots and the general public about the laws relating to unmanned aircraft in the UK, as well as give sensible advice regarding safe flying and possible dangers.

The CAA along with NATS (National Air Traffic Services) and ARPAS (Association of Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems) have confirmed that they will be speaking at Farnborough International Airshow this year, which attracts up to 80,000 people over the public weekend, to cover the important aspects of drone flight to be aware of before piloting a drone. This will offer a rare opportunity to listen to industry UAV and flight safety experts on topics of drone safety and to see presentations on the future of the drone industry and beyond, an event not to be missed.

As well as safety awareness the UK Drone Show will also allow visitors at the Farnborough International Airshow to experience live FPV (first person viewing) drone racing, wearables and specialist software, pilot training information, UAV gadgets and product demonstrations. Around 70 exhibitors and drone manufacturers will be in attendance, many of whom will be retailers with the latest drone technology being sold directly from their stands. Plus, not forgetting to mention everything else the Airshow has to offer, including the world famous 5 hour flying display.

Drone Safety Awareness Weekend will add an exciting new element to this year’s Farnborough International Airshow. To book tickets and for more information visit http://www.farnborough.com/public/
