It's great to see a growing interest among women flying drones. Typically all things aviation and technical are dominated by men. It doesn't need to be that way. Drone use is a new, fast growing industry so it's the perfect opportunity to get involved. Lets encourage as many women to get into the industry as we can. We all know we make better drivers and I'm sure that would translate in the air. There is a wonderful group on instagram called Women who drone, I think it's an awesome idea. Lets built on it.
I attended my drone piloting course through the wonderful guidance of Global Drone Solutions, who made a promotional video during the week I was training. You can see the video below and get an insight into what's involved and the fantastic facility and location they use. I can't recommend them highly enough. Excellent tuition and a great team. Thanks Guys, really enjoyed the course.
