Urban Flyers are holding free drone taster days which offer residents in Lewisham the opportunity to access, learn and create with drone technologies. The event will be held between 10am-5pm on Saturday and Sunday at 2-3 Winslade Way, SE6 4JT (formerly Store Twenty-One) in Catford Shopping Centre.
Attendees must register prior to their visit. Urban Flyers organises workshops, training and drone experiences which help young people and adults get to grips with drone technology. Their workshops are an opportunity to learn new skills and they have been visiting schools, youth clubs and inclusion centres to deliver their drone clubs throughout local communities.
The drone taster days in Catford will consist of hands-on flying experience by manoeuvring the drones through different obstacle courses. Everyone aged seven and above is welcome, to meet the Urban Flyers team, have a tour of the hub, and ask questions.
Project Manager Simon Melbourne said: “I am proud that we are able to offer this exciting and unique event for the local residents of Catford.
“We are confident that people will enjoy themselves, connect with others from the local area, and learn new skills.
“If you are interested in joining us for these taster sessions, don’t worry if you have never piloted a drone before. The Urban Flyers team are on hand to help you develop your skills, no matter the level or experience you have of flying.”
