How Drones are Connecting Guam Across the Pacific
Both pilots and companies are navigating a thin line between security and innovation. Host Grant Guillot talks with leaders, influencers, and experts across the drone industry to guide us through the complex web of technology and policy in the United States.
Drones in America host Grant Guillot has discussed the future of the American drone industry – but never before how Guam fits under that umbrella. As the westernmost part of America, the island falls under the scope of the FAA.
But how does the small island get the attention of the FAA? That’s where Bella Wings Aviation comes in. The start-up is working with the FAA to develop a new market in Guam and to help take the boundaries of the industry further through its tropical location.
To get a further understanding of this development and the immediate impact this will have on the drone industry, Guillot sat down with business partners Pearla Cordero, Charlie Hermosa and Dong Won Lee.
In addition to guiding Guillot through how they envision drones will capture islanders’ interest through contactless delivery, they discussed the economic opportunity the industry will bring to Guam and how it could help keep the island on track, technologically, instead of it falling behind other territories.
