Female drone pilots are everywhere!

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.

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.
