Michael P. Huerta, administrator of the Federal Aviation Administration, will give the Grand Opening Keynote address at InterDrone, which takes places Sept. 7-9 at the Paris Hotel in Las Vegas. He will be joined at InterDrone by a high-level lineup of commercial drone thought leaders who will frame the state of the industry for the more than 4,000 attendees expected at the conference, including Tian Yu and Chris Anderson, founders of Yuneec and 3D Robotics, respectively.
