They were founded by a US Navy test pilot and made a major upgrade to modern equipment in 2015. Check out their website here: https://www.masterairscrew.com/pages/about-us

    Now for something completely different… here is YouTube sensation Jim Bowers, AKA Demunseed. I’m still not sure what to make of him, but he is doing a lot with drones and he is based in Sacramento. And he has a large and growing following on YouTube.

Rentals, sales, services, repairs, parties and events, indoor racing course, a pilot’s lounge (super cool concept!), visitor’s lounge, restrooms (important!)… check it out here: http://fpv-dronezone.com/index.html
