Joint DRONERESPONDERS/TRUWEATHER SOLUTIONS Weather White Paper:
In a late October 2017, an article in Business Aviation Insider, NBAA said, “Weather is a contributing factor in 35 percent of general aviation accidents…”
Given this statistic, weather will be a key factor for public safety drone operations as well, especially with Tactical BVLOS and Drone-as-a-First Responder programs. In order to maintain the highest level of safe operations possible, it is critical to have a tool to help public safety remote pilots to be aware of rapidly changing weather conditions.
This webinar will provide insights about how to stay ahead of impactful micro-weatherwind, cloud and fog conditions and how to prepare for the safest, most effective drone operations possible.
Don Berchoff, CEO of TruWeather Solutions, with 35 years of experience executing and supporting mission critical operations in the Air Force, National Weather Service and the drone industry will host the webinar.
