'International Drone Day' takes place Saturday May 7th 2016. This follows the success of the first International Drone Day in 2015, which saw over 40,000 people in 50 countries take part.
Drones continue to be an often controversial topic, and so International Drone Day 2016 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!”
In partnership with the Academy of Model Aeronautics 'AMA', International Drone Day event activities vary by team and include drone racing, aerial photography and videography instruction, and search and rescue demonstrations. All events are open to the public and press, with photographs, filming and interviews welcome.
We would love you to attend an International Drone Day event. The Toronto, Ontario event will take place at Vaughan Sportsplex II, 8301 Keele St, Concord, ON L4K 1Z6 from 10am - 6pm on Saturday May 7th. The Toronto event is led by FPV Racing Events and Autobotix FPV Racing Products. Joe Scully (FPV Racing Events) is an internationally renown FPV Drone Racing Director tasked with event management, logistics, execution and commentary with an event roster spanning Canada (Ontario and Alberta), America (Georgia, Florida, Texas, Arizona, California and Ohio) and France. Paul Dowling (Autobotix FPV Racing Products) is the owner of a Toronto-based Drone Manufacturer and parts distributor with decades of RF Technology experience and an abundance of tenure in the UAV-space.
International Drone Day is supported by the Academy of Model Aeronautics, ONAGOFly, AirVuz, MultiGP, and International Drone Marketing
Sponsors of the Toronto event are ReadyMadeRC, ImmersionRC, TrueRC Canada, Scorpion Power Systems, New Generation Hobbies, DPC AV, Airvid, Drone Racer Tee Shirts, Detroit Multirotor Company, Autobotix, Team Blacksheep, Sasquatch Labs and Fat Shark RC Vision Systems.
International Drone Day was founded by Sarah and David Oneal, of “That Drone Show”. They comment: “International Drone Day is hosted by the drone community for the public. It's an opportunity for people that have heard of drones to find out more about them. As a result of International Drone Day 2015, vast numbers of people now understand that drones are used in good ways – from being used to save lives in search and rescue, to providing more efficient ways to monitor crops, to producing beautiful photographs. International Drone Day also highlights the much needed economic boost provided by drones, and shows that drones are fun!"
