About this event

The commercial drone industry is projected to be worth more than $20 billion in the next 10 years. We'll explain the technology that powers drones and discuss the foundational skills that are needed to succeed in this industry, along with understanding the challenges that it faces. In partnership with Commercial Drones FM Podcast, join us for an evening of drone discourse and learn everything from the basics to what the experts see for the future of drones.

This panel of experts will take us through a practical approach to getting started with drones, including technology basics, an introduction to unmanned aviation regulations, and the most promising commercial applications.

More than just remote-controlled toys, drones can be game-changing for the real estate, agriculture, industrial inspection, construction, and environmental conservation. But if you want to fly a drone for business, there's a lot to consider—what kind of drone to buy, the basics of airspace management (our moderator is a commercial helicopter pilot), how to get your remote pilot's license (it's easier than you think), how to use drones to deliver value to your clients, and more.

About the Panelists: The panelists were curated to represent the leaders from three different verticals within the drone industry. They are experts in drone hardware from the largest drone manufacturer on the planet, software from the leading cloud-based drone mapping platform, and airspace integration from one of the world's largest aerospace companies.

About the Partner This event is hosted in partnership with Commercial Drones FM, the podcast for the drone industry. The commercial drone industry is projected to be worth more than $20 billion in the next 10 years. Your host, Ian Smith, guides you in discovering the people, the concepts, and the global industries who already use drones in their businesses today.
