A slate of the leading drone and aviation industry media outlets — including The Drive, Unmanned Aerial Online, DRONELIFE, UASWeekly.com, UAS Magazine, and UAV Expert News — reported on last week’s launch of the Alliance for Drone Innovation (ADI), a new policy-oriented coalition of manufacturers, suppliers, and software developers of personal and professional drones. The wide-ranging coverage reflects the growing interest and support among stakeholders and consumers for increased safety, innovation, and expansion of the drone economy. “We look forward to working with Congress, the administration, and other stakeholders on policies that promote innovation and allow the drone market to flourish in a responsible and safe manner,” said Executive Director Jenny Rosenberg in launching the Alliance.
ADI is focused on promoting innovation and the growth of the unmanned aircraft industry for both personal and professional use. As highlighted in these reports, drone technology is transforming industries from agriculture to infrastructure to public safety, saving time, money and lives – while also allowing everyone to see the world around them in entirely new ways. ADI promotes awareness among policymakers, media and the general public of how drones help society, ensuring that government policies allow everyone to achieve the benefits of safe and responsible drone flight.
