The Dowling UAV/Drone Club hosted the Press Club of LI, Society of Professional Photojournalists this last Saturday in the Hunt Room of Fortunoff Hall. We had members of the Press Club, the Drone Club and invited guests from the American Red Cross in attendance. NY Post photographer, Eddie Coppa, gave a PowerPoint presentation on UAV’s with an emphasis on their future in photojournalism. The event concluded with a flight demonstration by Mr. Coppa, Professor of Aviation, Jim Record, and guest Steve Kapur using professional quality HD video equipped drones on the Great Lawn to demonstrate the photo capabilities of these amazing machines. The event underscored Dowling expertise, resources and commitment to prepare our students to enter the growing UAV/Drone Industry, with our first UAV course offered in the Spring 2016 semester.
