My name is Ben Lovegrove and in this post I’m going to tell you about SUAS Global and why I think it’s essential that you should join SUAS Global if you’re interested in drones.
First, a bit of background.
I started flying drones in 2014 and soon became aware that this industry was about undergo a huge expansion. At that time the Drone Age was just beginning and no one was really sure where things were going.
Similarly, not so long ago, people were indifferent towards mobile phones and the World Wide Web when they first appeared. They regarded them as fads that would soon pass or merely tools used by a narrow, specialist market.
Today, few people could imagine life without smartphones and the Web that together, connect the globe.
It would be foolish to make the same mistake with regard to drones. Imagine combining Siri or Alexa with a robotic drone and you’ll begin to see the potential.
If you’re already involved either as a amateur or a professional then you’re in a strong position. If you’re not yet involved then you should give serious consideration to starting a new career or a business associated with the world of unmanned systems. By learning to use drones and studying all the latest developments you’ll be ahead of the curve.
However, information is everything. If I knew in 1997 (when I built my first website) what I know now about the web, then I would be very, very wealthy by now. It was not to be but you on the other hand could be at the right place and the right time in history.
But only if you have accurate information and the valuable contacts, and that’s where SUAS Global comes in.
