How many days until International Drone Day?


It is a day for drone enthusiasts to convince the world that drones are good.

International Drone Day is observed the second Saturday in March in 2015. It has been observed the first Saturday in May since 2016 in order to celebrate all things related to unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV).

History of International Drone Day

Drone is a type of aircraft that is controlled by a pilot. The catch is that the pilot is actually not inside the plane. Instead, the pilot is controlling the plane on the ground via remote control. Drones are becoming quite popular around the world. The drone technology costs around $100 billion. About 70% of drone technology is related to the military. The rest are associated with the commercial and consumer sectors. In recent years, personal drones have accounted for the majority of sales.

Many people also just have drones for fun. While many people love drones, some say they should be banned for personal use. They argue that drones could be used to spy on people or steal information. Others say drones disrupt air travel.

However, most countries around the world can use personal drones, as long as they follow the rules and guidelines. In the United States, users must register their drones with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). Drone users must also keep their UAV at or below 400 feet above the ground, fly it within sight and away from airports and aircraft.

David Oneal got his first drone in 2014. Because of the lack of information about drones for personal use on the Internet, he decided to start his own video program. He calls it “That Drone Show.” He along with other drone enthusiasts created International Drone Day. Their goal is to convince the world that drones are good. The first International Drone Day was celebrated in May 2015. It has been held on the first Saturday of May since then.

How to celebrate International Drone Day

Thousands of people around the world gathered together to show that drones are good. Drone users hold small air shows and demonstrate the benefits of using drones. To participate, consider purchasing your own drone. If you already own a drone, take it out for the day and have fun. In addition, you can also make some experiment in some different ways to use your drone. If you use your drone to take photos or videos, be sure to share them on social media with #InternationalDroneDay.


International Drone Day has been observed the first Saturday in May.
