Drones are changing the way people think about aviation, and around the nation people are looking at new opportunities to use them for fun and profit. With those opportunities come challenges for policy-makers, who strive to keep drone enthusiasts away from hurricanes, playoff games, and angry, shotgun-wielding landowners.
Join Ars today on our Facebook page as we live-stream a discussion from the White House about the possibilities and perils of drones and personal aircraft. White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough will host the talk.
Guests include Secretary of Transportation Anthony Foxx; Helen Greiner, Roomba inventor and founder of drone company CyPhy Works; and Eric Allison, CEO of personal aircraft company Zee Aero, which is working on a new generation of personal aircraft.
The talk starts at 12:00pm Eastern time.
If you have a question about the future of aviation you’d like the panel to address, you can submit it via the White House blog.
