PENN TWP – Did you find a drone under your tree? You’re not alone! According to the FAA, registration of Unmanned Aircraft Systems, or drones, now outnumbers aircraft registration in the United States. But does your drone even need to be registered? Where are you permitted or not permitted to fly?
To help answer the many questions we receive, the Pittsburgh-Butler Regional Airport, formerly the Butler County Airport, is hosting another free seminar on drones. Join us the morning of January 14, beginning at 9:30, inside Hangar C3, 475 Airport Rd, Butler. Drone flying guidelines will be presented by a representative of the FAA, followed by a flight demonstration and a question and answer period. Seats are still available, so please join us, even if you didn’t sign up! The EAA will be selling coffee and donuts as a fundraiser, come prepared if you might want to purchase a treat.
This event was initially planned for December 17, but was rescheduled due to inclement weather. If you had new leather work gloves for our Lend a Hand Drive, we will still collect them for Hosanna Industries; they are so grateful for the support.
