Can they be used for Facility management? We have all seen the You Tube videos. Can they make your Job easier? Colby’s Photography is already using drones for various customers in Knoxville.

With their rapid technology development, UAVs (un-manned aerial vehicles, also known as drones) are becoming more and more relevant for facility managers. They often offer an easier, safer, faster, and more cost-effective solution than more traditional practices. Inspections are one area where drones are making a big impact, especially with thermal imaging. This presentation will quickly review many of the regulations and flight concerns, as well as considerations for hiring a pilot and for piloting a drone yourself.  

Come and bring another Facility Manager as your guest. Go to www.ifmaeasttn.org and sign up for this event. We will be meeting at the Gettysvue Polo Golf and Country Club, 9317 Linksvue Dr. Knoxville starting at 11:30 till 1 pm.
