My name is Owen Nicely. I am an Aviation Management major, and I am a senior currently.
So, we’re giving them [the younger students] a first-hand experience of the drone industry and how to operate them so, in the future, they can pursue drone careers.
I just love being in Florida. Actually, my hometown is Fort Myers, Florida, so I just love the atmosphere and the weather. It’s usually always pretty good.
We have a different types of drones. We have a few quadcopters and also a few fixed wing drones. Mainly, they’re used for mapping large areas.
The Aviation program, being able to meet a whole bunch of new people, is really why I love being in it. Getting to teach them all the stuff I’ve learned while I was here and to show them all the cool drones and the stuff that you can do with that.
