Skyfire Consulting, a public safety drone consulting company, has teamed up with Sporty’s Pilot Shop to develop a drone Christmas tree ornament. Made from hard resin, Skyfire’s drone ornament is modeled after a consumer-style drone.
“We have hundreds of clients who are enthusiastic drone pilots, and we want to give them a way to celebrate their passion on their Christmas trees,” said Matt Sloane, CEO of Skyfire Consulting. “We looked and looked to try to find an existing drone ornament, but we couldn’t find one anywhere, so that’s when we called Sporty’s.”
Sporty’s Pilot Shop, the world’s largest online retailers for pilot supplies, currently carries a selection of Christmas tree ornaments depicting a variety of airplanes.
“With thousands of drone pilots, offering an ornament just for them is a natural addition to our line of Christmas tree ornaments,” said Sporty’s Doug Ranly. “With the crossover between airplane pilots and drone pilots, we think this drone ornament will be a popular item this holiday season.”
Ornaments will be available for pre-sale in July on SkyfireConsulting.com for $29.99, and proceeds will be donated to public safety charities. The ornament will also be available on Sportys.com or by calling 1-800-SPORTYS.
