A Word About Drone Safety
Austin is a “drone friendly” town, open to new technologies. It is important that all drone pilots, professional and hobbyist, stay safe by understanding the technology and regulations. In Dec. 2014 Chris founded Austin Drone Pilots, a group of professionals, amateurs, and “drone curious” that as of March 2017 numbers more than 1,500 members. The group is focused on sharing safety best practices. In addition, this web site hosts a dedicated Austin-focused drone safety page: Drone Rules and Regulations for Austin, Texas Area Pilots.
