DJI is one of the top names when it comes to unmanned aircraft systems. The company has been known for its high-standard drones that cater to different industries. With that, DJI has also become keen in spreading knowledge about drone usage.
As per recent reports, the drone-maker has partnered with AMA (Academy of Model Aeronautics) to launch a program with several goals. The partnership aims to promote responsible and safe drone operations. It also aims to train public safety officers to be able to use drones effectively. On top of that, the partnership will also focus on educational outreach efforts.
DJI announced the partnership February 15 and as per AMA Executive Director Dave Matthewson, safe operations is the most important thing for AMA. He also said that this cooperative effort will intensify the safety efforts as the two organizations team up to build educational programs for DJI products. DJI's Vice President of Policy And Legal Affairs Brendan Schulman mentioned that as a Life Member of the AMA, he knows the value of the organization's community engagement and educational programs. The DJI head also noted that he is excited to work together with AMA to retain the freedom of operating aircrafts whether for recreation or for education.
DJI and AMA will join hand in hand to promote AMA's Public Safety course, which is a hands-on training for public safety officers to help them use drone technology in their day to day jobs. Additionally, DJI will also support AMA's educational efforts. This includes the UAS4STEM drone construction and flight competition for the youth. As per SuasNews, the drone-maker will be offering 10 percent discount on DJI products. General Manager of DJI San Francisco Office, Ryan Tong, said that recreational and educational operations is the key in technology innovation. He also cited that model aviation inspires people to pursue careers in different fields including robotics, aviation and sciences.
