There are few who doubt that sUAV (Drone) commercial operations are here to stay.  The fact is Orlando and the surrounding areas are not easy to maneuver as a drone operator.  This complexity is leaving a lot of operators with many questions: How do I operate? Who gives me Authorization? What about the City of Orlando's ordinance? We plan to demystify some of these issues.  Most importantly, we plan to convey how to operate safely in this complex environment.
