Female drone pilots are everywhere!
One of the largest communities of drone pilots outside North America is the UK. It is host to some of the largest International Drone Day events each year, and pilots there are operating in a similar climate to those of us in the US.
As Sarah is from England – she only moved to California five years ago – she was excited to be featured recently by an English drone blog.
“The Drone Lass” is run by Carys Kaiser. Carys is a professional CAA PFAW drone pilot who operates commercially as Kaiser Aerial Media.
Read Carys’ interview with Sarah here:
Carys is one of many female drone pilots worldwide doing awesome work.
However, despite there being many female pilots and women working in the drone sphere – there are currently almost 500 members of the Amelia Dronehart group founded by drone pilot Rhianna Lakin – there remains a gender gap.
For this reason, the ASCEND Drone Conference and Expo has partnered with Women and Drones and Drone360 magazine for the first Women to Watch in UAS Award.
The Award is designed to acknowledge and motivate women who are driving change and leading a new industry closer to gender parity.
Finalists will be announced at ASCEND in July.
