Hobbyists celebrate D.C. Drone Day with flying events on May 7

Public invited to more than a dozen free events around Washington, D.C., Maryland and Virginia to learn about safe flying of drones and model aircraft

More than a dozen Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA) clubs will celebrate D.C. Drone Day by inviting the public to flying events free of charge around the Washington, D.C., Maryland and Virginia region on Saturday, May 7.

Events will include drone racing, obstacle courses, demonstrations and aerobatic stunts of model airplanes, helicopters and drones, as well as many educational opportunities.

At each event, experienced AMA club members will be on hand to answer questions and share information about how to fly safely and legally. As a nationwide community-based organization, AMA is committed to increasing education for new drone flyers and keeping our skies safe for all.

D.C. Drone Day is a celebration of International Drone Day, which began in 2015 as a way to celebrate drones and to educate the public about safe flying.
