It's International Drone Day - PPA Today

It's International Drone Day

By Autumn Rice is number one in up-to-date drone information, so of course we're excited about Saturday, May 7, 2016, International Drone Day. The day is all about celebrating drones, and educating the world about how useful they can be, including in photography. 

In honor of this exciting day, there are about 150 International Drone Day events going on at the same time all around the world. These events are hosted by AMA (Academy of Model Aeronautics) and are accessible to anyone. Click here to find an event near you!

While you enjoy all of the Drone Day fun, please remember that drones are currently strictly for recreational or hobbyist use. Until the FAA finalizes new regulations, any other uses are prohibited unless you have FAA pilot certification and a Section 333 exemption.

Don't forget to visit for updates on anything and everything drone related. 

Happy International Drone Day everyone!
