Following our success at Festival d’ete de Quebec, we did it again at Just for Laughs!

 The Canadian Drone Academy has been flying non-stop! We kicked off the month of July with our drone activation event for Loto Quebec at the Festival d’ètè de Quebec 2017.

 The Canadian Drone Academy (CDA) will be featured as the title sponsor for the Vancouver Drone Expo on August 19th at the Burnaby Sports Complex. The expo will host the West Coast Canadian Drone Nationals racing qualifier and an International Drone Racing Association (IDRA) race. In addition to competition, the curious, drone hobbyists and racing pros alike are invited to partake in the family friendly and educational events offered by the Canadian Drone Academy. “The Canadian Drone Academy was created to easily get people into drone racing and the hobby,” says Nick Iversen, founder of the Canadian Drone Academy, “we are very happy to support the Vancouver drone expo by bringing educational content and experiences to this great event, allowing people to try it out first hand.”
