Western Drone Show set for Winnipeg

January 30, 2019  By UAV Canada Staff

The Western Drone Show is a new event taking place this year in Winnipeg on May 3 at the Victoria Inn, which is situated near the James Armstrong Richardson International Airport. Organizers plan to hold the event on an annual basis providing industry-leading speakers and networking, with an emphasis on educational development for the region and at the same time catering to drone operators with sessions on topics like aerial photography.

On the education front, organizers explain the one-day event provides a professional opportunity for teachers, government personnel, and industry experts to collaborate on properly introducing UAVs into the classroom safely, responsibly and meaningfully.

The goal is for drone industry stakeholders to help lead the integration of RPAS into the education system.

The event was created through a collaboration of Frontier School Division and M3Aerial Productions.


Speakers so far include representatives from Transport Canada, NAV CANADA, Unmanned Systems Canada and Brandon University, who will participate at several breakout sessions throughout the day that simultaneously bring UAV education, standards and industry together.
