There are two great local user groups and we’re active members of both.
The New England Drone Users Group is for anyone with any interest in any kind of drone.
In additional to traditional photography events, Vermont Photography Meetups regularly holds meetups specifically for enthusiasts/operators of aerial photography and cinematography drones.
Vermonters with an interest in Drones are welcome to join the Vermont UAS Drone Operators Facebook Group.
Everyone interested in flying should also join the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA). The AMA is an association of modelers organized for the purpose of promotion, development, education, advancement, and safeguarding of modeling activities. They’ve become the national voice for its membership, providing liaison with the Federal Aviation Administration, the Federal Communications Commission, and other government agencies. AMA Members also receive liability insurance for the operation of their model aircraft.
When joining the AMA, they’ll ask for recruiter details. You may provide the following details:
Recruiter Name: Steve Mermelstein
