To commemorate the partnership and celebrate the 119th anniversary of the Wright Brothers’ First Flight in North Carolina, Xelevate and Washington-Warren Airport will co-host the inaugural Washington-Warren (OCW) Air & Drone Show on December 17, 2022.
The event is open to the public and designed to demonstrate the safe integration of drone technology in this community. Visitors will gain a cultural introduction to drones through a technology showcase, live demonstrations, local business partnerships, and more. Educational programs will also highlight how unmanned technology will create purposeful and prosperous careers in Beaufort County.
The move paves the way for Washington-Warren Airport to become the first Drone-Smart airport on the East Coast, a commercial co-location facility for both airplanes and scalable, safe unmanned flight operations.
