Unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) company DJI is opening a “DJI Arena” in Korea – a place for customers to learn how to fly drones and a gathering place for aerial enthusiasts, says the company.
Opening in mid-August, the 1,395-square-meter, indoor arena – located in Yongin, Gyeonggi Province – will be equipped with safety nets; an adjustable, LED-lit circuit for those who want to test their skills; and an LCD TV for a more immersive experience via first-person view. A maintenance room will be fitted with charging docks and a workstation for customers to do minor repairs.
“We hope to provide a safe and fun environment for people to experience the technology firsthand, whether they are skilled enthusiasts or someone who is just curious to learn,” explains Moon Tae-hyun, DJI Korea’s country manager. “Best of all, the indoor venue will provide a space for people to fly all-year-round despite weather conditions outside.”
The DJI Arena will be open for individual and group bookings, corporate event rentals, and DJI’s New Pilot Experience Program and workshops. The arena will also offer the stage for more advanced flying experiences and drone racing.
Four months ago, DJI opened its first overseas flagship store in Hongdae, Seoul, Korea.
