Senior Chet Wiltshire presented his Capstone research project about drones, using his mentorship with his friend’s father, a former Navy pilot, along with Mark Burgess; he won third place in the Tidewater Science Fair.

Chet started flying drones young, and as he got better, he decided to take it to the next level.  He explained that the two most famous drone brands are DJI and Yuneec, and some drones, according to Chet, can be priced up to $3000.

“I think it’s crazy how we can fly a pressurized tube of metal hundreds of miles per hour, thousands of feet above the earth to places that are thousands of miles away safely and efficiently,” said Wiltshire.

Wiltshire’s goal is to get his commercial license to fly drones without a mentor present, and he was given the chance to fly an actual plane with Burgess.

    I am the webmaster of the site for the Hampton Roads Chapter of the American Helicopter Society. We awarded Chet a scholarship this spring. I have a nice image file of his graduation portrait, but I am looking for a higher resolution image that would be used in Vertiflite Magazine, published by the American Helicopter Society. I have copied the picture from your website, but it isn’t an improvement in resolution over the copy of the graduation picture. I was wondering if you have a higher resolution copy of Chet giving his project presentation.

    Thanks
