  • Optional catering available – country-style cooking plus a memorable camp oven dinner under the stars, on Saturday night
  • Supported by the Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF), Quilpie Shire Council and the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA)

Rural Drone Academy training covers the A to Z of everything a drone pilot needs to know in order to fly safely, productively and enjoyably. Drone workshops are based on a wealth of drone and small business experience, with specific topics added according to participant interests, such as photography and agriculture. Each workshop is unique.

What does the Quilpie drone workshop include?

  • Global standard information
  • Everything a drone pilot needs to know to fly safely, productively and enjoyably
  • Professional standard aerial photography & cinematography tips
  • Additional topics can be touched on, according to participant interest – selling stock images & undertaking commissions, social media tips, book publishing, holding exhibitions
  • All skill levels of drone pilots and photographers welcome and will benefit – from beginners to advanced
  • All ages, but under 16s must be accompanied by a parent
  • The style is interactive. While Fiona Lake runs through the must-know information stories are shared, and there’s always a lot of laughter while learning
  • Illustrated with images taken by Fiona Lake across Australia and at overseas drone events
  • If you’d like in-depth detail on what is covered, visit the Rural Drone Academy blog post.

This will be one of the most special drone workshops I have run – fantastic outback location, friendly locals, excellent home-cooked food. And some great people booked in to attend – many driving long distances to be there. Don’t miss this great opportunity to be part of something not only useful, but enjoyable and memorable!
