There are currently an estimated 1.7 million drones registered with the federal government, several major companies such as Amazon have already tested delivery service using unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), and the FAA is about to require Remote Identification (remote ID) of Unmanned Aircraft as well as issue new guidance allowing operators of drones to fly them at night and over human beings who are not operating them.

Obviously, drones or UAV's are making headlines.  Currently, we see drones inspect infrastructure, save lives, and support Minnesota farming.  What more does the future hold?  How long before your coffee is delivered via drone or you travel to work in a flying pod?  Join us for a discussion about Federal and State drone rules and regulations, how drone aircraft operate, and where you may expect to see them.  In addition, we will discuss where drone technology is headed from package delivery to unmanned passenger vehicles.  What does all this mean for airspace integration and the future of our aviation economy?

Please join us in welcoming Katie for this exciting and informative presentation.
