2016: Drones have arrived and they’re here to stay!
In the next few years we will see more and more drones being used in more and more fields like the pre-eminent form of deliveries, in aerial photography and in every home will be one-if not three-drones. The revolution has created a new profession: a drone operator and in Israel, this currently requires a full pilot’s license. We in Israel (as the Start-Up Nation and as an Air Force state) are leading the field both with start-ups developing drone and aerial photography technology as well as training drone pilots.
The Geek PicNic Festival drone stadium will be tremendous and will include an 80 meter long, 60 meter wide and a 6 meter high ceiling caged track. The drone stadium will be one of the largest areas at the Festival spread over 5 dunam and will include aerial obstacle courses, competition tracks and drone stunt stations. The exhibition will host Israeli champion drone pilots and will have endless activities and competitions throughout the Festival.
