Upcoming Events

March 13

Membership Meeting - Learn About Drones
Open to the Public
7 p.m.
At the Gallery

Drones, properly called Unmanned Aerial Vehicles or UAVs, have been around for a long time but only recently have they begun to garner a lot of attention. Modern technology, particularly the miniaturization of electronic components, has given us tiny UAVs you can fly around in your living room and larger units for peeking over your neighbor’s fence. A burgeoning hobby has developed supplanting traditional radio controlled model airplanes. You have undoubtedly heard a lot about drones lately, everything from package delivery to your door to the disruption of airline traffic at major airports here and abroad. Drones have become widely used by police and the military for surveillance and by commercial interests for such things as pipeline patrols. Drones, unfortunately, are also used for nefarious purposes like privacy invasion and drug smuggling.

To find out more about the history, development, and application of the drones and about necessary steps being taken to regulate their use, join us at the Mitchell Gallery at 7:00 p.m. on March 13 to hear our speaker, PJ Kirkpatrick, brief us on what’s going on. PJ, professionally involved in developing UAV technology and applications, will shed a lot of light on this fast-growing facet of aviation.
