Aerodrome unveils plans for Eldorado Droneport

Aerodrome LLC unveiled its design plans for Eldorado Droneport, the world’s first commercial droneport, Wednesday. The plan for the permanent droneport facility includes office space as well as build-to-suit pads that will be available for lease.

The 50-acre Eldorado Droneport, a joint development project between The Aerodrome and Boulder City, is one of only six Federal Aviation Administration-appointed unmanned air systems test sites in the country.

“We’re looking forward to seeing the Eldorado Droneport developed into a permanent, state-of-the-art facility that makes Boulder City proud,” said Brok Armantrout, director of community development for Boulder City. “This is an exciting project for the unmanned aircraft industry and for our local community.”

“Eldorado Droneport is unique in that it is designed as a teaching droneport,” said Aerodrome CEO Landon Taylor. “As companies develop and refine their applications of UAS technology, Aerodrome and Eldorado will be the go-to place with the facilities and expertise to train the future workforce for these specialized jobs.”

Free training program to aid those caring for aging veterans

The Nevada Department of Veterans Services is sponsoring a free comprehensive training program to assist those caring for aging veterans, including those living in eldercare communities.

The program, called “Bravo Zulu: Achieving Excellence in Relationship-Centered Care,” will be held from 8:15 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Monday at Brady Industries, 7055 Lindell Road, Las Vegas. It is designed to give care partners of veterans a better understanding of military culture, as well as the influence and impact of service experiences on the health-care needs of aging veterans.

Though developed with veterans in mind, the program also can improve care and support other elderly people, particularly those living with dementia.

The course qualifies for those seeking continuing education credit.
