Update: Typo Of The Year? Sport Av Expo Link Pointed To Marijuana Distributor

Stranger Than Fiction -- Folks, We Could Not Make This Up If We Tried…

News/Opinion/Analysis by Jim Campbell, ANN CEO/Editor-In-Chief Aero-News RealTime Update, 1257 ET, 01.18.18: You might call it the typo of the year... ANN was contacted by a city official from Sebring a few moments ago and while they did not contradict the story below, they did attempt to blame the hyperlink that led to a medical marijuana distributor on a typographical error on the website. Mind you, we called the Expo folks yesterday and explained what we were questioning, but we did not get a response and they have yet to follow up as promised. Still... as ridiculous as it was, this error and its explanation is far more preferable to the concept that an event like this would be promoting marijuana sales at an aviation event. We were not the only ones to find this link, click on it and wind up on the Nature Med site, but it apparently it took our calls, over the course of two days, to get someone to correct

The FAA has registered a million drones, the DOT announced last week at CES in Las Vegas, with the vast majority of them being used for recreational purposes.

In addition to being required by law, the registration process helps educate drone operators who are new to aviation by having them agree to the FAA’s operating rules and increases airspace security by identifying drones with their owner. Autel Robotics USA has announced its new flagship aircraft line, the EVO. EVO is a portable camera drone with foldable arms and a sleek, compact
