DARTdrones officially announces the launch of their Public Safety Grant Program. In honor of their one-year Shark Tank anniversary, they are offering $100,000 in public safety grant funds as a commitment to save more lives with drones. After training 70+ police and fire departments worldwide, DARTdrones has seen the capabilities of this technology, and want to offer more departments the opportunity to implement drones. We hope that this $100,000 pledge is just the beginning.  READ MORE

  1. Not saying this is an “us too” situation but we at Drone Pilot, Inc. have been doing this for years. The “grant” is just really a discount on their classes, not so much of a money-into-your-hands type of grant that can buy you equipment. I would imagine, the more pilots you send, the larger the “grant” would be, which is essentially a quantity discount. Anyone in business would do this. Very nice marketing ploy though since many PSA’s rely on grants for funding.

    • Within just the first three weeks of launching the DARTdrones Public Safety Grant, we have awarded over 40 police and fire departments the following package at a minimum: 2 free spots in our In-Person Flight Training courses, 2 free spots in our In-Person and Online Part 107 Test Prep Course, 2 free spots in our 14 online continuing education courses, and consulting time about submitting a COA. The 40+ departments that have been granted funding have received at a minimum over $3500 in free training with no requirement for them to spend any money with DARTdrones. We believe this is a very noble cause and are dedicated to increasing the lives saved with drones.
