 Buena Vista, Colorado, March 8, 2018 — The Upper Arkansas Water Conservancy District (UAWCD) is the latest corporate sponsor of the Central Colorado UAS Club (CC UAS Club), a budding drone-advocacy group, Club President Taylor Albrecht announced today.

“Interest in small unmanned aerial systems (sUAS) is growing in both the private and public sectors, Albrecht said. “The UAWCD recognizes the potential benefits of sUAS to their operation and supports the CC UAS Club’s commitment to promoting safe and efficient drone operations. Their sponsorship will help us further this mission in the community.”

Terry Scanga, General Manager of UAWCD, attended the February Club meeting held at the Harriet Alexander Field airport in Salida. He said he was impressed by the group’s presentation. “We have been contemplating all of the ways that drones may make our operation safer and more efficient, as well as giving us useful information to help fulfill our mission,” Scanga said. “The Club is a valuable resource to ‘plug in’ to the drone community and technology, and we are delighted to promote it through this sponsorship.”

The UAWCD will appoint three employees, including Scanga, to participate in Club activities. In addition, they will attend the Remote Pilot Ground School being offered by TNL Aviation in Buena Vista this spring.

UAWCD joins Anderson & Hughes, P.C. and TNL Aviation as corporate sponsors of this growing organization.
