Gary Mortimer

Founder/CEO/Editor - sUAS News

Gary Mortimer has been a commercial balloon pilot for 25 years and also flies full-size helicopters. Prior to that he made tea and coffee in air traffic control towers across the UK as a member of the Royal Air Force.

His goal for sUAS News:

“It’s clear that the small unmanned systems market is poised for a rapid expansion. Putting as many press releases and rumours in one place was the reason I created sUAS News in 2008. Now that more systems are flying and people are gaining operational experience, facts not fiction need to be exposed. It’s a snake oil filled market”

Gary has been a judge in the DIY Drones Time Trust Trial (T3) competition since its inception.
