Have you had to sit in a traffic jam in the last six months? You know, where the freeway looks more like a parking lot than a high speed thoroughfare? Well, one has to wonder if in the not too distant future we will be transitioning from flying the “Friendly Skies” to flying the “Crowded Skies.” And, the concern is not going to be airplanes as much as it is going to be pilotless crafts - UAVs. That’s why you need to become as acutely aware of DRONES IN 2017 AND CESSNA 208 TRAINING as possible.

“I have seen, as you can imagine,” Dale Wolcott, President of TURBINE TRAINING in Manhattan, Kansas, shared with a chuckle in his voice, “a lot of changes in my life. None of them, however, is greater than the advent of vast numbers of pilotless aircraft that either are, or soon will be, roaming the air!”

If “vast” seems to be a little much to you, you may want to consider this: In 1900 there were approximately 8000 cars in the United States – by 2000 there were 130,000,000! Just as the teamsters who drove their horse drawn wagons along the highways and byways of our nation might have been concerned about the effect of the horseless carriage on the ability of them to do their job, pilots might being viewing this new innovation in the same way.

“The thing is,” Jason Wolcott, TURBINE TRAINING’s Vice President, explained, “is the fact that they are finding more and more uses for Drones, which will, of course, increase the number of them that will be flying.”

Jason is absolutely right. In fact, ‘new uses” for 2017 include, but are not necessarily limited to:

  • Expanded use for Local Delivery – Both by AMAZON & DHL.
  • TransportationUBER is working on a “Flying Car” concept which will, in essence, be a giant Drone.
  • Civic Duties – Fire Depts., Law Enforcement, and other First Responders will be able to use them for Recon purposes at the very least.
  • Tools for the TV and Film Industry
