Event locations will vary - this is a nationwide event with both in-person and online activities.
ABOUT THE EVENT
The FAA organized a National Drone Safety Awareness Week each year from 2019 through 2021. This year, we’re evolving our approach with ONE Drone Safety Day.
Drone Safety Day Event Topics Include:
Education – How to safely operate drones, fostering a greater understanding of the commercial and recreational uses of drones, and highlighting how drones are being used in education.
Economics – Highlighting the economic, societal, and safety benefits of using drone technologies. For example, using a drone to inspect infrastructure that would be more dangerous for a human to inspect (i.e. bridges, towers, power lines, etc.)
Equity – Opening opportunities for all operators. Drones offer an accessible pathway into aviation. Drones provide more opportunities for historically excluded communities to be part of the Aviation community, including a lower cost of entry.
Environment – Understanding the environmental and sustainability benefits of drone technologies. From reforestation to monitoring wildlife populations, there are countless ways to engage with our environment using drones.
Emergencies – Learning how drones are used in emergency situations such as: natural disasters, search & rescue, firefighting, public safety, and other uses.
We invite everyone to celebrate and participate in Drone Safety Day!
