Safer Airport Skies Require Savvy Drone Pilots

SAN ANTONIONewark, Gatwick, Dubai – reports of rogue drones closing airports are becoming commonplace. “The solution to keeping drones from flying where they shouldn’t be is about drone pilot savvy,” said Droneport Texas President David Hook. “The best safety investment in aviation is a well-trained pilot. So, we found like-minded companies and agreed to do something about improving small unmanned aircraft safety.” To this end, Hook announced the formation of an alliance with commercial drone ground school providers Planehook Aviation Services, LLC and Opango, Inc. Both agreed to champion the cause of drones and airport safety.

“We teamed with Opango and Planehook Aviation Services to improve drone pilot awareness of airspace and flying safety,” continued Droneport’s President. The three alliance partners concur that the solution is improving the gaps in airspace awareness for both new and seasoned drone pilots.
