Welcome to HomeDrone-17 – the first enterprise drone conference in the Pacific Northwest!

March 21st, 2017, at the Spokane Convention Center.

Unlock the sky for your business!  In this one-day conference, you will:  come to understand where we are now, and how we got here, with enterprise/commercial access to U.S. airspace by unmanned aerial systems (UAS, or drones); learn what one must one do, or not do, to safely, and legally, fly an unmanned aircraft in U.S. airspace;  and get a peek at where the visionaries among see drones will take us in the future.

We’re putting our schedule together now, and will post it in weekly updates starting in March.  Meanwhile, if you have a speaker to suggest, would like to join us as an exhibitor, or would like to support the event as a sponsor, please be in touch:  tom@spokanerealtor.com

Keynote speaker:

JD Claridge, CEO and co-founder of xCraft, a leading drone company developing innovative vehicles for the UAV market. JD was born with a passion for flight. Building and crashing flying toys throughout his youth taught him much about the science and art of flight vehicle design. He once built a (mostly) functional hang glider at the age of 7 and convinced his best friend to test fly it.  xCraft is based in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho.
