This hands-on training course will provide public safety officers the knowledge needed to use UAS technology safely and effectively in their daily jobs.

DJI, the world’s leading maker of unmanned aircraft systems, and the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA), the nation’s leading voice for aircraft modelers, have partnered to launch a joint program to promote safe and responsible drone operations, train public safety officers to use drones effectively, and support educational outreach efforts.

The Toledo Show: R/C Model Expo is North America’s largest and longest running R/C model expo. This three day event showcases all types of R/C models including planes, cars, and boats. Along with the all the exhibitors there is a R/C model competition, speakers, swap shop, and an auction. This event is fun for the whole family.

Sir George Cayley, often called the Father of Aeronautics, designed a helicopter powered by a bow-string mechanism with feather blades (similar to the reproduction shown here). Later, he experimented by flying a model with multiple adjustable surfaces, allowing him to understand how every change affected the model’s flight. This model is a ½ scale replica of his original 1804 model. Cayley used the data from these experiments to publish his On Aerial Navigation in 1809.
