Drone Safety Day

Annual Drone Safety Day is Saturday, April 27, 2024

Drones are the fastest growing segment of aviation in the United States. As of October, there are nearly 864,000 drones registered with the FAA, and over 330,000 certified Remote Pilots. These numbers are projected to continue to grow and we want everyone who operates drones to have fun and be safe!

Drone Safety Day (DSD) is an annual campaign designed to educate  drone users of the importance of flying safely, inspiring fun drone activities and connecting a community of enthusiast. DSD will highlight the societal, economic, and safety benefits of safe drone operations with in-person, virtual, and hybrid events in focus areas such as Education, Economics, Equity, Environment, and Emergencies.

Join us by having an event of your own!  Download the 2024 Drone Safety Day Playbook  and 2024 Drone Safety Day Flyer  to learn more on how you can participate. These materials will give you an outline of what Drone Safety Day is all about and ideas for how to put together your DSD event.
