The Boards of MDATAI (who is hosting this year) and NAPARS (who is helping) have both voted that the in-person Conference October 6-8 should go forward as planned. The room at the Grand Hotel is ginormous, so spacing should be no problem. We'll have masks and sanitizer on hand and we will be verifying temperatures with non-contact thermometers at the meeting room entrance. Anyone with flu-like symptoms is asked to sit this one out, eh? We will have live crash tests, but we will not be conducting contemporaneous Zoom broadcasts. As in years past, handout material will be uploaded in a few months to the Reference Library, with presenters' permission. We're approaching 100 registered attendees at this point, so it should be a good crowd.
ACTAR TEST: There's an ACTAR test the day before - see ACTAR.ORG for that registration.
ACTAR TEST PREP CLASS: I'll be leading a day of preparation for the test on October 4th at the hotel, with assistance from one or two ACTAR-certified recons - sign up for that at the EVENTS tab.
PART 107 Class: There are 10 attendees already signed up for the Unmanned Aerial System class, you can join them! Sign up in the EVENTS tab for this, too.
Peace. -Wade, administrator
