New for 2015, the Lyon County Fly-In presents “The Drone Zone”. Here you will see the latest in unmanned aviation technology and the people that are making it happen. Northern Nevada is often referred to as “the Silicon Valley of Drones” and our Drone Zone will present the many entities that are making this true. At the Drone Zone, participants will be able to see cutting edge unmanned aircraft systems, talk with the people who design and operate the unmanned aircraft and learn how our youth can get started now on path to an exciting career in unmanned aviation.
A main attraction at the Drone Zone will be the University of Nevada netted drone flight area. Here you will be able to test your drone flying skills or watch others as they fly their drones around the obstacle course. Participants are welcome to bring their own drones to the Fly-In but they can only flown inside the netted area.
