Lisa Marie Payne

Utica NY - The SUNY Polytechnic Institute University Model Aviation Student Club #15104 (UMASC) in cooperation with CNY Drones will host NEON Night Race II, a MultiGP drone racing event, Saturday, September 15, 2018, at Wildcat Field on the SUNY Utica Campus.  The event opens at 7:00pm with races starting at dusk. In addition to fast-paced outdoor drone racing, spectators can mingle with area drone enthusiasts, try out FPV - First Person View goggles and drone flight simulators. Drones will fly under the lights with a special race using a neon lit course and darkened field.  CNY Drones is the MultiGP Racing Chapter for the Utica/Rome area.

SUNY’s AMA Club partners with CNY Drones to present drone races and STEM-focused drone events. CNY Drones provides racing to complement their core program, an annual indoor Team Drone Challenge for students, age 11+.  SUNY Polytechnic’s AMA Club will also host Drone Info Day, on September 30, 2018, and the Team Drone Challenge Competition Day on April 7, 2019.  The growing partnership gives volunteers and college students more opportunities to provide the community with inspiring STEM-focused programs that feed into the regional drone education and employment pipeline.
