Webinar: "The Way Forward: Commercialization of UAS with Regulatory Uncertainty"

  • July 29, 2014 · 8:00 PM

Please join us for this presentation about the way forward for UAS commercialization in the United States. In March 2013 AUVSI released its report on The Economic Impact of Unmanned Aircraft System Integration in the United States noting that in the first three years of integration more than 70,000 jobs will be created in the United States with an economic impact of more than $13.6 billion. Report author Darryl Jenkins will discuss his latest research and what has changed since the release of that study. Please join us for this exciting discussion for the future of the UAV industry and what we can do to help this technology reach its full potential. This event will be held as a Google Hangout on Air and can be viewed at https://plus.google.com/events/c10ecvn5ht5b7dok7jad5ko4ocs

    I notice that the schedule says 8pm Eastern, but, when I click on the Google+ Hangout link it indicates what is effectively 8pm Central time. Just wondering if there is a slight disconnect and what the correct time is.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
