VIC | 2022 Victorian Division AGM with guest speaker James Rennie

It's that time of year again! The formal AGM proceedings will be proceeded by our guest speaker James Rennie, who will present on Drone Technology in Environmental Data Gathering, Now and Beyond – an Overview

Meet the speaker

James Rennie | Managing Director, Australian Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV)

James founded Australian UAV in early 2013 after a 17 year career in technical and management roles in environmental companies and local government. A keen aero modeller as a child saw James develop a lifelong passion for aviation that collided with his professional data and analytic skills.

He has now amassed over 2000 commercial drone flights that have taken him around Australia and as far afield as Antarctica and Armenia. James is recognised as one of the leaders in drone service delivery in Australia and has presented internationally. AUAV has been listed in the top 20 drone companies globally for the past two years by Drone Industry Insights based out of Germany.

As CEO and Chief Remote Pilot at AUAV his role is largely office based now but he does still occasionally get his hands dirty on complex projects.

James will use video, animations and graphics to present an overview of the wide range of environmental data gathering applications using drones, both currently and possibilities into the future.
