High Flying Gravity Defying Drones Escalated May Meeting
Members and guests of the Facility Manager Association of New Mexico gathered on a sunny balcony overlooking the iconic Anderson Abruzzo Albuquerque Balloon Museum to witness a flying demonstration and gather information on the latest technical applications for drone technology in facility management and monitoring.
Jesse Sansom, drone pilot, designer and graphic artist with the Colibri Media House, provided a brief historical perspective on the early development of these unmanned aerial vehicles, beginning with early applications for offensive uses, development by the military in World Wars I and II, and into the modern age with advances in solar powered and recreational uses for today's drones.
And today? "Facility managers and property owners can now to accurately survey acres of property within days, not weeks, and 3D modeling allow you to take measurements that are accurate within inches, eliminating the guesswork with Google Earth-type services. It is possible to obtain real time data to monitor facility structure, rooftop conditions, and to view every square inch of your property without leaving your desk," he said. He also gave an update on the latest on laws and regulations for commercial drone operations and guided attendees with some expert tips for hiring legal, reputable, professional drone operators.
Executive Director Column
Free-Spirited Golf Helpers
Hi there! Want to rock your company logo'd golf shirt in front of about 130 facility managers? Get on the map? Get noticed? Then please let me know TODAY that you will help me as we launch our annual golf tournament into orbit on Friday morning, July 19th, 2019.
Here's a secret: The golf gang has as much or maybe more fun than the players. I need you to show up at 7 am at the beautiful Isleta Eagle Championship Golf Course Club House armed with scotch tape, a big smile, and the willingness to help run signs out onto the course, refill the coffee pot, arrange the door prize table, or whatever else it takes to get the guys and gals onto the greens so we can enjoy ourselves too. Then we commandeer golf carts and drive around, analyzing the proceedings. Really, it is a blast.
Send me an email today and let me know you are coming. I WANT YOU! firstname.lastname@example.org
