Celebrate National Drone Safety Awareness Week

National Drone Safety Awareness Week is an opportunity to educate the public about drone safety by highlighting how key sectors of the drone community are engaging with their community throughout all 50 states. Drone safety is everyone’s responsibility and the events planned for this week are designed to advance public-private partnerships and inspire collaboration.

Here’s What You Can Expect this Week:

All week long, the FAA calls attention to drone safety champions by promoting YOUR safety stories, successes, events, and educational programs. Everyone is welcome to participate in this weeklong campaign. Use these stories to engage with the public and help spread awareness about how drones are bringing value to your community!

Each day will focus on a specific theme, and AUVSI will be hosting a FREE webinar each day during the week. Click below to register:
