Palmerston North Branch Meeting - NZ UAV CENTRE and Fieldair Business Units

When: 10 September 2019
Speaker: John Reid CEO Fieldair;
Subject: NZ UAV CENTRE and Fieldair Business Units

Our September meeting was addressed by John Reid and Chris McLaughlin of Feildair who gave us an overview of the Companys’ current operations and of their new business arm i.e. the “NZ UAV Centre.” It was a fascinating presentation aimed mainly at the use of ‘drones’ in the agricultural sector. The presentation was followed by more questions from the floor than I can recall at any other Branch meeting. The meeting was very well attended by Members on a pretty tacky evening weather-wise. Thank you to Frank Sharp for arranging the Speakers.

John has invited us to visit their new UAV Centre and your Committee will seek to organise that early in the New Year. John has also suggested we may be able to visit something around 305 seats whilst there are 270 seats in the current 777-200 flying the route.
