Drones? Controversial? They are when they are flying over a superyacht invading the privacy of the guests onboard.
There is a new marine anti drone defence course launching in Palma on Friday 23rd February. The course has been put together by drone experts and air traffic control specialists in the UK. The company Marine Anti Drone (or MAD for short) is bringing the training to Palma, Mallorca, due to industry demand for this specialised service.
