Draganfly
Commences Drone Pilot Training Program at Alabama State University

 

Los
Angeles, CA. October 21, 2021 —
Draganfly Inc. (NASDAQ: DPRO) (CSE: DPRO) (FSE: 3U8) (“Draganfly” or the “Company”),
an award-winning, industry-leading drone solutions and systems developer, is pleased to announce that its Drone Pilot Training program
is now being offered at Alabama State University (ASU) in Montgomery, Alabama.

 

Currently
in week three of the nine-week course, Draganfly is sharing its vast industry knowledge with select ASU faculty members and students,
which includes those in the Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC) and various STEM academic programs. Draganfly’s team
is comprised of leaders who have decades of experience in aviation, robotics, and engineering.

 

“ASU
made history last year by becoming the first university in the United States to implement Draganfly’s Vital Intelligence technology
to keep our campus safe during the pandemic,” said Dr. Quinton T. Ross Jr., President of ASU. “Draganfly continues to keep
our students top of mind by ensuring they are properly prepared for a drone-filled future. We look forward to the continued collaboration
with Draganfly.”

 

The
program includes a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Part 107 drone preparation course. To fly drones under the FAA’s
Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Rule (Part 107), a Remote Pilot Certificate must be obtained. The certificate demonstrates that
pilots understand the regulations, operating requirements, and procedures for safely flying drones. It is also inclusive of specific
skills for sensors, software, and missions as it relates to varied specific high demand drone operations like emergency response, delivery,
and security.

 

As
of October 18, 2021, FAA data found that more than 865,600 drones have been registered in the U.S. and nearly 249,000 remote pilots
have been certified.

 

“It
is an honor to further expand our partnership with ASU. From sophomores to PhD experts, the Drone Pilot Training program teaches future
generations how to solve real world problems through the proper operation of unmanned aerial vehicles,” said Cameron Chell, CEO
of Draganfly. “With the help of ASU and their association within the HBCU community we see a lot of potential to grow this program
into a national footprint of drone pilot training at the university level.”

 

“I
am incredibly grateful for the opportunity to learn from the experts at Draganfly. Drones continue to play a significant role in everyday
life, and it is essential that we understand how to safely operate them,” said Angela, an ASU student.

 

Following
the end of the pilot project in the winter, ASU is expected to add the course to its continuing education program. Draganfly’s
Drone Pilot Training program will also be commercialized next year.

There is more to being a drone pilot than just buying a machine and flying in your backyard. It can be that simple, but most of us will need to understand some drone laws before we try to take to the sky.
