Drones designed by university and college students across Canada will take to the skies at Manitoba’s Southport Airport later this week, as part of a national competition.
About 130 students from 14 teams are taking part in Unmanned Systems Canada’s ninth annual Unmanned Aerial Systems competition at Southport Airport, located south of Portage la Prairie, Man.
The competition actually began earlier this year, as registered teams had to submit design reports for their unmanned aerial vehicles by mid-January. The flying demonstration starts Friday and runs through Sunday at Southport.
