As drones increase in popularity, so they do in numbers. While it’ll still be a while before the skies are gonna feel crowded, more and more eyes will be looking up – both to see what the fuss is about, but also to make sure the pilots know what they’re doing.
Of course, there is nothing better than hands-on experience, so if you just got a drone, please do take it out to the nearest field – far away from crowds and powerlines – and start flying. But if you want to know a bit more than what you can learn on your own, consider registering for one of DJI’s New Pilot Experience events.
From DJI’s website:
Learn to fly safe and unleash your creativity with DJI New Pilot ExperienceTM! These free events serve as an introduction to the DJI Phantom and are designed to give first-time pilots the knowledge needed to become a capable pilot.
Following a informative indoor session, participants will head outdoors to get hands-on flight experience with a Phantom, under the guidance of an experienced instructor. Pilots will have the chance to win prizes by completing the special NPE Challenge.
Events are held all over the world. See the complete list on DJI’s website.
In other DJI news, the company is now offering crash insurance – it’s not cheap, so even more the reason to acquire a proper skill set before taking to the skies.
