By chance I attended an UVS International Conference for the first time in 2009, when I was serving in EASA: nice event, friendly atmosphere, time to discuss and network with colleagues and, finally, an organisation not only looking at large military drones, but also at Small and Medium-sized Enterprises involved in small civil RPAS. Since then I have regularly attended UVS International events and still find them useful to consolidate positions across the community, whether they are involved in large or small "birds". www.unifortunato.eu
