ARC Aerial Imaging attended the ARPAS-UK AGM which was held at Turweston Aerodrome, Northamptonshire, England on Friday 26th February 2016.

Formed in 2013, The Association of Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems UK (ARPAS-UK) is a non-profit association that represents the small RPAS industry in the UK and to help promote best practice amongst its members. ARPAS-UK is the unified voice of our members, pushing for sustainable growth within the RPAS industry in the UK and ensuring that all operators are represented; both with the CAA and other stakeholders.

During the AGM the committee reflected on its achievements over the year and it gave its members an informed insight into some ongoing and exciting projects in the future. As part of normal AGM protocol, it was also an opportunity for ARPAS-UK members to pay its gratitude to the outgoing ARPAS-UK committee for their organisation and their tireless work during 2015 and to vote in a new committee.

It was a great day and an opportunity to meet with fellow UK professional UAV/RPAS commercial operators - with lots of discussions and with the potential to possibly collaborate with some.
