Catford Drone School - Saturday 3rd & Sunday 4th November


Urban Flyers launches the Drone Taster Days — a brand new drone event for the residents of Catford


Team Catford is leading a programme of meanwhile use to ensure we make the most of vacant spaces as the long-term process of regeneration takes place. As part of this programme and to celebrate their launch in Catford, Urban Flyers are holding free ‘Drone Taster Days’ which offer local residents the opportunity to access, learn and create with drone technologies.


The event will be held between 10am-5pm on Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th November 2018 at Store Twenty-One (opposite Poundland) in Catford Shopping Centre SE6 4JU.


Urban Flyers organises workshops, training and drone experiences that help young people and adults get to grips with drone technology. Their workshops are an opportunity to learn new skills and they’ve been visiting schools, youth clubs and inclusion centres to deliver their drone clubs throughout local communities.


The Drone Taster weekend will consist of hands-on flying experience by manoeuvring the drones through different obstacle courses. All flying activities are indoors and 30 minutes slots will be allocated on a first come first served basis.   Everyone aged 7+ is welcome to come along, meet the Urban Flyers team and ask questions. Under 7’s can attend but will not be able to fly.


Simon Melbourne, Project Manager, said:

‘I am proud that we are able to offer this exciting and free 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.’
