ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., July 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Drone U, an internet-based drone training company, will be holding its first ever Fly-In at its Albuquerque headquarters next month. The sold-out event will be an opportunity for drone pilots, enthusiasts and advocates to meet, network and compete in a series of professionally-designed "missions".


Hosting 75 pilots from around the United States, Drone U's Fly-In is the first event of its kind. Members of the ever-growing drone community will gather to take part in six separate drone competitions, each constructed to highlight key skills involved in drone flight. Prizes will be awarded.

While designed to test each pilot's flying ability, the competitions are intended to reflect the practical application of drones in real-world situations. Challenges will include race courses, vehicle tracking, and "rescue missions" based around the transportation of life preservers.

It is the goal of Drone U to promote the growth of the drone industry and its participants. The company, which trains pilots of all ages and skill-levels, specializes in helping drone hobbyists transition into the professional world. The membership-based platform provides online training and industry advice to its rapidly growing network of pilots.
