SALINA — Unmanned aircraft systems, more commonly known as drones, are both popular gifts over the holiday season and a widespread hobby for flying enthusiasts. Many systems are sold and marketed as ready to fly; however, it is important that consumers are up to date with important regulations and safety practices.

Kansas State University Polytechnic Campus is offering a free webinar and live question-and-answer session with UAS experts to discuss important safety practices, flying rules and regulations, and tips for operating your UAS.

Join the Kansas State Polytechnic UAS experts at 7:30 p.m. CST Tuesday, Jan. 15, to discuss the difference between hobby and commercial UAS operations and which applies to you, safety considerations when operating your UAS, and important Federal Aviation Administration rules and regulations to ensure compliance when operating your system.

The webinar is free but registration is required. Kansas State Polytechnic is an expert in the UAS industry and has been part of numerous research projects advising rules and regulations in the industry. Kansas State Polytechnic was named third-place winner in the training and education category of the 2018 XCELLENCE Awards by the Association for Unmanned Vehicles Systems International.
