Welcome to UAViators

UAViators (pronounced You-Aviators)

Our Mission is to bridge humanitarian and UAV communities internationally. We do this by supporting a global volunteer network of professional, civilian and responsible hobbyist UAV pilots who facilitate information sharing, coordination and operational safety in support of a broad range of humanitarian efforts. We also want to be pro-active in educating new civilian pilots rather than wait for mistakes to be made. Our objectives are thus four-fold: provide coordination support, facilitate information sharing, enable safe UAV operations and establish clear standards for humanitarian use. Our proposed strategy for 2014-2015 is available here.
