editor’s welcome

HAPPY NEW YEAR! I don’t know about you, but I ate and drank my fill over the holidays. I’m kind of glad they’re over. Don’t get me wrong; I love the music and lights and cheer and everything about that time of year. I like the cold. I love snow. And while time away from the office offers plenty of time to fly drones, it also makes getting a magazine out on time a little more difficult. Nevertheless, I (and this issue) made it through. So let me share some random thoughts — which is, as you know, what we devote this section of the magazine to. I’ve devoured more shows than I can count on Netflix in the last year, and one of the things I’ve started noticing with more and more…

drones play key role in #nodapl movement

“[DRONES ARE] our eagle eyes in the sky,” says Dean Dedman Jr., a drone pilot also known as Dr0ne2bwild who’s been capturing drone footage of the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) construction and protests in North Dakota since August 2016. Last April, members of the Standing Rock Sioux tribe began protesting the construction of a portion of DAPL, which will transfer oil from North Dakota to Illinois, crossing over sacred sites and under the Missouri River. Thousands of activists, known within the movement as Water Protectors, joined the protests — including drone operators.

1 YOU HAVE BROAD AND VARIED EXPERIENCE IN MANY INDUSTRIES. WHAT DREW YOU TO THE UAS INDUSTRY? For as long as I can remember, I’ve always been intrigued by aviation. I have fond memories of my dad taking us to the airport; we’d sit in the car just outside the fence at the end of the runway and watch the airplanes take off. Afterwards, we would go to the park and fly his remotecontrol airplane. Although my education and career took me in a different direction, in many ways, this opportunity to work in the UAS industry is finally a chance to follow the passion my dad instilled in me for aviation. My years of experience in insurance, financial services, and board governance are proving to be immensely invaluable skills. For me,…
