Last Thursday we had a special guest visitor from Idaho State University. He’s the professor there for aeronautics and wanted to bring his passion for drone flying to Salmon, ID. We had an enthusiastic group of young pilots that wanted to take flight. After a short little in classroom lesson they all got the opportunity to get on the flight simulators and additionally get some flight time with our small entry level drones. From there each student got to safely pilot a more expensive bigger drone to feel the difference. It was a great introduction into a world that will be part of their future. We look forward to furthering some of the students appetite for drone piloting in the future with our grant we were awarded from Idaho STEM action center earlier this year in which we received 5 STEM building drones. We’ll have build clinics and piloting clinics to sharpen their skills to hopefully get a few passionate students to set up their own chapter of drone flying right here in Salmon, ID! Stay tuned for those classes!
