While 2020 was a challenging year for traditional aviation, COVID encouraged many airline pilots to transfer to flying drones, while governments began to embrace the burgeoning UAV revolution.

The panel discusses the raw skills required to make the transition, the unique challenge of flying beyond the line of sight and how the space is evolving.
