Practice Makes Perfect at a Fly Day

Regular and repeated exercise of an activity is the best way to become proficient in it. It also helps reveal potential elements of friction in the process that can be addressed before becoming an issue in a high-stress situation. First responders are very familiar with the concept and train the use of their tools regularly.

Today, one of the tools our firefighters have come to appreciate in assisting their mission are drones, and the team from DroneSense was invited to participate in a drone training exercise in Austin, informally called a Fly Day, by our local Fire Department’s Special Ops Team.
