Details

Learn how to use drones safely, with confidence and skill at this fun Drone Flying Workshop presented by Northern New England Drone User Group Organizer and VTDrone.com Founder, Steve Mermelstein!

This two-hour workshop is designed to give everyone the knowledge needed to become a capable and safe drone pilot.

Following a very informative classroom session, participants receive a training drone they'll get to keep!

All skill levels welcome! Even beginners or someone who has been flying!
This class covers a wide range of essential and important information. Following our advice will help you avoid common mistakes and significantly decrease the risk of costly crashes. Everyone will learn a lot of new and critical practices, procedures, and skills which are not touched upon in any manual or online video or course.

Separate classes are offered for Adults and Children/Families:
Our Children/Family class is generally best suited for ages 12 and up but younger kids may also benefit if they're more mature or advanced for their age.

DO NOT GET DISCOURAGED IF THERE ARE FEW (or zero) RSVPs SHOWN ON THIS PAGE.
All our meetups are advertised to several different clubs and web sites. More people have likely signed up for this workshop using those other methods. Those other methods are completely independent of this page/group and are more active. We will automatically close the meetup to new sign ups once it’s actually full. In the rare and unlikely event we don’t fill up, the workshop will still go on as long as there is at least one paid signup.
