We will then have an indoor flying demonstration. There will also be discussions about how to use drone to take great still and video images and offer coaching support for those who will be taking the license test.

Course Facilitator

NameDavid K. Cairns
David Cairns is a marine biologist with many years of northern experience. He considers himself singularly fortunate to have been paid to gaze up at whales, sit still while a puffin unties his bootlaces, steer Zodiacs through bergy bits, sleep among the ghosts of great auks, and narrowly avert disaster involving a nighttime call of nature and a sleeping grey seal. He flies drones to map underwater habitat. He can't believe that he's actually paid to do this!
