Four drone companies—DroneUp, Flytrex, Wing, and Zipline—are expanding commercial package drone delivery operations in our region. Hear from industry experts and municipal planners about what this means to North Texas communities. From land use and zoning for ground operations to flight operations that fall under FAA regulations, this session will bring everyone up to speed on where commercial drone delivery currently stands in North Texas and what its growth looks like over the next decade. This is a hybrid in-person/virtual session. Please be sure to select which option you will attend when registering. Additional description can be found at the EventBrite for registration.
