For over 40 years, Bruce Enderle has been in the business of raising and training parrots at his ranch, Arizona Parrots . However, three years ago, he decided he not only wanted to work with birds, but he also wanted to fly like one, opening a drone racing track that is open to the Tucson community. 

Beginners can learn how to use a drone safely, not only for their investment but also for the safety of the community. Enderle says anyone is capable of learning to fly drones. Kids can start training as early as five years old.

Another thrilling aspect of flying drones is its virtual reality component. By putting goggles on, you are put inside the experience. Enderle says it's, "real reality tied with virtual reality." 

Drone training and racing at Arizona Parrots is free and open to the public most Saturdays at 8 p.m. Enderle says to call ahead to reserve a spot .

You can join the Tucson Multirotor Racing Group on Facebook where you can be in the know on the drone community in Tucson.
