DronePort is a unique concept in Flanders and Europe. The Americans also did notice that. Last week we received a number of guests from USA Drone Port. They were very enthusiastic about our approach and returned home with a lot of inspiration.
The USA version of DronePort cooperates with economic development organizations to support the unmanned aviation industry. The concept is similar to DronePort in Sint-Truiden. They want to promote the Kentucky aerospace industry by providing leadership and partnerships that ensure that the industry has the means to succeed.
USA Drone Port has the ambition to become a world-class research center for unmanned aviation in their region, with numerous development, education and training facilities. Just like us, they offer various testing areas and space for innovation and development. They were very enthusiastic about our approach in Belgium and we also have learned a lot from this very interesting meeting.
