Score a Free Ticket to the Largest Commercial Drone Show in America

Recommended Posts

I am a hobbyist I love building drones and flying them...

I must admit I am the worlds worse pilot...LOL...

I went to the show last year and was impressed with all the new thing that are out there and I would like to be able to go just to see what I can learn this year...

Last year I picked up a few tips but it was mostly a commercial show the big copters that there was no way a hobbyist could afford and from my understanding there is to be a lot more for the hobbyist this year....

I'm a geologist, environmental scientist and GIS specialist. I recently convinced my company (environmental and engineering firm) to start integrating UAS into our environmental work. I believe we can help shape what is possible with UAS. I have my part 107 certification (the only one within my company of 1400, though we’ll be sending more people to ground school in preparation to acquire their part 107, followed by various other training classes, etc) and we've begun integrating UAS as a basic photographic and GIS point cloud tool. I wrote the UAS standard operating procedure, safety plan, hazard analysis and standardized flight log forms for my company, and have been demonstrating the usefulness of UAS to our ongoing projects in 36 states (soon to be international). I know there is much more capability to be developed though. In my industry, there are pieces of equipment/sensors which have to be manually used, on location (sometimes in hazardous locations), but I see these being developed to connect to UAS and communicating data in real time to the operator, removing the human risk element and streamlining certain workflows. I see so much more than just a photo/video tool in UAS.

 

I would love the opportunity to meet people on the forefront of developing the future of UAS, learn from those who’ve been involved much longer than I, and get involved shaping the future of UAS. The environmental industry generally has not integrated UAS, but I see that changing, if someone within the environmental industry can show its viability and help develop the tools necessary to make UAS more relevant. Environmental is one of the fastest-growing industries around the world, and it could be one that embraces UAS as an integral and invaluable tool, employing many UAS pilots and opening the technology to new directions.

After a few years of bringing up the benefit of using a drone for site audits rather than deploying a full crew out to cell sites, my boss finally gave me the go-ahead to take the course and look into purchasing a company drone (DJI Phantom 4 Pro, what whaaat?). The UAV Coach course played a great part of why I passed my 107, and it made learning about the laws and guidelines FUN! I ended up testing for my Part 107 and passed with flying colors. Now that we have a drone, as well as a certified drone pilot at work, we have had more work opportunities than ever! We expect to double our site audits by next year, which is very exciting for us. I would love to attend this drone show so that I can expand my knowledge in the drone community as well as learn what technologies could help us in auditing cell sites and beyond. We hope to expand our arsenal of drones with the kind of work that we are awarded, so I think it would be great to see what is in store for the better of my fellow drone pilots, as well as how we can use the drones to better suit our customer's needs.

I think the tickets should go to the people who have responded to the most questions on the forum.  They have demonstrated a willingness to share their experience.

First of all good morning to you all, My name is Sergio Aguirre, I am currently workng for the Aviation Authority in Bolivia. I am elaborating the drone regulation for our airspace. I have a part 107 Remote Pilot License and 2 years of flight experience and building my own drones. I would like to be part of the InterDrone in Las Vegas because it would mean a significant advance and progress as a pilot and  as a member of the Aviation Authority, to be able to meet other especialists in the area as well as experiences and knowledge that would be incredibly useful for this part of the world.

I´m very focused on Research and Development as well as Drones Safety and it´s uses and applications, the oportunity to attend InterDrone would be a great way of networking as there is so much to learn, that being there would be a jump start in so many ways.  As you said  " At this conference, the winner will get to connect with other drone pilots, service providers, UAS engineers and developers, UAV manufacturers".

Have a great day and thank you so much.

Best regards.

As an engineer and a drone pilot I know I would enjoy InterDrone immensely.  It would be a great experience and I would love to attend.  InterDrone would be a great place to learn more and possibly help me use my Part 107 Certification in the future.

Thanks for allowing me this opportunity and thanks for helping me get my certificate.

I have an opportunity to be retrained and I have chosen the Drone industry as a career. I think the Interdrone conference would be the best way to decide on the best path to success

Being fairly new to the drone marketplace, I am looking to expand into my current career field even further through drone surveying.  Currently performing flyovers for clients, but could really use the interaction and advice of other pilots.

Starting a new business is hard enough , starting one at close to 50 yrs old is proving to be an even greater challenge.

I would love the opportunity to attend Inter Drone and network with others who are working toward doing the same.

My long term goal is to help others to get into this incredible industry . Attending this conference and all the classes would

be a powerful tool in creating momentum for my business with a long term effect of helping others in this exciting

industry.

There are two things that determine the success of a business; Discipline and luck. Part of discipline is the willingness to pursue the necessary steps that lead to your desired outcome. Within these steps, the element of luck must be present to assist with success. An event like InterDrone allows us the opportunity to pursue information, relationships and experiences that would take years to accomplish on our own. The combination of InterDrone and UAVCoach create a launch pad towards a successful UAS career. I appreciate the generous offer and would love to attend InterDrone as a UAVCoach student/champion.

I started flying UAV's under a public COA as a law enforcement officer in 2015. When my department asked me to research Part 107, so we could make changes to our training standard within the COA, I looked to Drone Pilot Ground School as my training option. I felt the program was very professional and will be a great tool for future pilots in our department. I have flown several hundred UAV missions as a law enforcement officer and as my career nears a end, I would love the opportunity to see how UAV's are used in everyday civilian world. The chance to attend a conference like Interdrone would help me with possibly opening my own business or provide connections with others for future employment after my law enforcement career. Thank you, Mike

I've been in business for 1 year, 6 months now. And no pun intended, but I'm having major trouble getting off the ground. I'm connecting and doing everything I can to get out there. My goal is to create a drone mastermind to help each other and share the industry. I know this conference would expedite that greatly. If you want to know more, I'll send you a copy of think and grow rich and am open to converse. My mission with drone squad is to show others they can build sustenance from their hobbies! Takes a village. ;) Would love to weave you into a piece of such a journey. As a 21 year old, with the first business taken seriously and a fire ignited in my soul, I say bring it Universe. I play fastball for breakfast. Let's show the world what we're made of! 

 

Ciao, and thanks for your wonderful and generous contribution!

want to attend InterDrone 2018 because I am very interested in learning more about a possible career in the Drone Industry.  I served over 24 years in the military and was medically retired after being injured by an IED in Iraq while conducting convoy security missions.  I believe that the Drone Industry would be a great fit for me and I would love to learn more.

Hello my Name is Alistair Shaw and I am 22 years old from Albuquerque, New Mexico. I recently graduated from the University of New Mexico with a bachelor's in media arts.  I have been flying drones recreationally for the past year and thanks to UAV coach I have learned a lot about the drone industry. I will soon be taking my test for my commercial license so that I can turn this hobby into a career. Which kind of career I want to explore is still up for debate as the industry is quite vast and full of different opportunities. I want to attend this conference because many of these opportunities will be right at my fingertips and I can really get a hands experience. So far I only have done videography and photography as a hobby with my drone, capturing the beautiful New Mexican landscape. I can only hope to learn more from this conference and better my knowledge of the industry because who doesn't want to make a living flying drones all over the world!

I would like to attend the conference. I began my videography business two years ago and decided to Branch out into drones as well. I passed my test about 6 months ago and have been really trying to keep my business going. I am a one-woman show. Based out of Wellington. It is been a wonderful challenge to me and has pushed me Beyond where I think I could go. I would love to learn more about the industry by attending the conference. My revenue is limited so this would be a really big deal if I was able to get tickets.

My good friend and now business partner, who has been in law enforecement for about 30 is very deserving to go to the conference. He has over the years has been injured and decided to transition to another exciting career, commercial drones.  Low on funds but with good piloting skills, this would be a life-changing assist to help out a deserving person.  Thank you for the consideration.

Would absolutely & tremendously benefit from learning all that is available from this convention and associated workshops / classes.

Our small family has a steadily growing photography that is experiencing huge requests for aerial photography.

Definitely need help & education in every way possible!

As a private pilot I understand the importance of ongoing education.  As a drone pilot I bring a sense of responsibility and professionalism to my drone piloting.  As a photographer, piloting a drone affords me the ability to reach camera angles I have long-sought after.  Sharing my knowledge, skills and experience with others is a passion, and by attending the conference I will get/keep current on FAA laws, technology and techniques and be ever better at all aspects of being a drone pilot.
