Tim Trott has a longassociation with aviation. His father was a glider pilot at one time. Tim grew up with the Sky King television program and later met Kirby Grant after the TV star retired nearby in Florida in the 1970's. Many years later, with the assistance of Kirby's wife and family, Tim wrote the book "Out of the Blue - The Life and Legend of Sky King". When drones began to become popular, Tim bought an early DJI Phantom. When Section 333 Exemptions were required, he received one of the first 400 issued. When drone licenses were required, Tim took and passed the drone test in the first hour of the first day it was offered. He later went on to develop a series of training courses and was certified as an instructor by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, teaching first responders around the country, from Boston, Mass. to Houston and Texas City, Texas and from Lansing, Michigan to Ft. Lauderdale.
