Drone Nationals: The AMA's Perspective

09 Mar 2017 2:10 PM | Andrew (Administrator)

In this episode, the Roswell Flight Test Crew speaks with Andy Argenio, the District 1 Vice President of the Academy of Model Aeronautics, who is also the chair of the group's Advanced Flight Systems Technology Committee. Andy served as the Contest Director for the US National Drone Racing Championship, ensuring that pilots and organizers adhered to the AMA's safety code. Technically an amateur competition, the Drone Nationals were sanctioned by the AMA and all of the pilots who participated where required to present proof of AMA membership. Among them, Argenio saw the same attributes – including sportsmanship and a keen interest in technology – that marked the hobby of radio-controlled flying when he began more than 60 years earlier.
