best-buy-store-sign110408121111The Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA) and Best Buy are teaming up to educate consumers purchasing drones this holiday season. As part of a recently formed relationship with AMA, Best Buy locations will display brochures with AMA safety guidelines on store shelves and also feature regulation and safety information on the store receipts of drone purchases. In addition, Best Buy is offering one-year AMA memberships for purchase.

“Safety has always been our number one priority. By teaming up with Best Buy, we hope to help even more new drone operators learn how to fly responsibly,” said Dave Mathewson, executive director of AMA, the largest community-based organization for recreational model aviation enthusiasts.

“We have long said that education is the best way to promote safety and that’s why we’re excited to enter into this relationship with one of the nation’s
leading retailers.”

Finally a man with a plan. Retailers are part of the problem, they must be part of the solution.
