DroneLife spoke to Michael Weiland, who is the Managing Director of the UAV DACH e.V. Unmanned Aviation Association    he told us that the motivation for starting the Drone Pioneer Awards was to make the world better.

Michael told us, “But how can you do that as a leader of an association? I found the UN goals for 2030 (SGDs). My friends and I thought it is great to combine the UN goals with UAS and thus we designed the DPA.
