It’s National Drone Safety Awareness Week, hosted by the FAA Safety Team (FAAST), and we’re all there. DRONELIFE teamed up with Dawn Zoldi from P3Tech Consulting and Dave Krause, FAAST volunteer member and co-founder of Influential Drones, to provide you with a short 2-3 minute video on an important safety topic every day. You can watch these videos right here in the article that you can find every day (Monday below) or on our DRONELIFE TV YouTube channel. Live at 8:00 am EST on Monday September 13th: Safe Flyers take TRUST.
This week we’re showing a short instructional video every day on the day’s Drone Safety Awareness – and don’t miss the Dawn of Drones Podcast on Wednesday for an in-depth discussion on creating a safety culture in the drone industry.
From the FAA:
Each day of the week is dedicated to a specific educational topic:
- Monday: Safe Flyers complete the Recreational UAS Safety Test (TRUST)
- Tuesday: Register and tag your drone
- Wednesday: Become part of a flying community
- Thursday: New rules – remote identification and operations on people
- Friday: Public Safety & Public Acceptance
- Saturday and Sunday: Share the Skies – Get out and fly
The FAA predicts that 1.5 million drones will be in the air by 2025. Drone Safety Awareness Week will also highlight the advances in this exciting technology. Attendees will hear from drone pilots and industry experts on key educational topics related to drone safety.
