Farnborough International is delighted to have become a member of ARPAS-UK, the professional trade association for Remotely Piloted Aircraft and Systems in the UK and will be working with them on the Drone Safety Awareness Weekend as part of the UK Drone Show at Farnborough International Airshow. 

Following the number of recent 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. 

ARPAS-UK Chairman, Craig Lippett, said “ARPAS-UK sees its relationship with Farnborough International and the UK Drone Show as strategic and far-reaching.  Working together in this way provides a tactical approach to raising awareness in the consumer drone area”

UK Drone Show founder Olly O’Brien said “We are pleased to be working so closely with ARPAS and other agencies at Farnborough International Airshow on the importance of drone safety to avoid public misuse and potential collisions when flying drones”.

Farnborough International Head of Public Show, Sarah Gladstone added, “Our membership of ARPAS-UK, the only non-commercial professional body solely representing SUA operators and manufacturers in the UK, will enable us to work alongside them and their members to continue promote and educate on drone safety in the future”.
