Event Date: 
Wednesday, August 15, 2018 - 7:00pm

Kespry, an industry leader in drones and drone technology provides a complete drone-based solution that's easy enough to use for anyone in order to survey and inspect more accurately, easily, and safely.

 

George Fahmy, Technical Project Manager for Kespry will discuss how their specific system works, who can benefit most from drone technology, and how their system is being integrated into the national airspace system. Specifically, how safely integrating into the airspace system is something Kespry has been working on for a long time and George will share their experience and learnings.

 

George will then open it up for discussion with a Q&A session for pilots who want to know more about drones, either from a technical standpoint or from a more general standpoint. This will be your chance to ask and learn anything you wanted to know about drones from an authority in the field.

He was part of the prototyping and systems integration teams as well as managed the Test Engineering and Quality Assurance teams to ensure that our products are of the best quality for users. George also drive the drone data analytics and use it to optimize design decisions and improve overall performance.

As a certified Private Pilot, George has experience with aircraft avionics systems, and flight control systems as well and aircraft and airport operations for general aviation. To see progress of George’s airplane, checkout his website for detailed info about the build. www.N890GF.com
