U of D Drone Safety Awareness Week

University of Dubuque will participate in the Federal Aviation Administration’s first National Drone Safety Awareness Week from 2 to 4 p.m. Thursday and Friday. The event will be held at the Ed Babka Aviation Learning Center to educate the public about drone regulations and showcase how drones are used in the community. The event will include representatives from UD’s applied aviation technology program, the Academy of Model Aeronautics Dubuque Chapter, Aerial Services Inc., the Dubuque Regional Airport, and the FAA on both days. In addition, the Dubuque Fire Department, Dubuque Police Department, and United States Air Force will be on hand Thursday, while the City of Dubuque Cable TV Division will be at the event Friday. In 2017, UD launched its bachelor of science in applied aviation technology to provide students an opportunity to learn how to operate unmanned aerial systems in the National Airspace System. Projects from students in the program will be displayed at the National Drone Safety Awareness Week event.
