Donation to Rod Walker Memorial Fund

Cheque Presentation
Luis Alvarez accepts a cheque on behalf of Rod Walker Memorial Endowment Fund.

The Rotary Club of Brisbane Airport was once again proud to present a cheque to the Rod Walker Memorial Endowment Fund.

The Fund was established to recognise and support those individuals and organisations who undertake to advance the civil unmanned aircraft systems industry. It was the late Professor Walker’s vision to see unmanned aircraft routinely benefit all Australians in applications such as search and rescue, bushfire fighting, emergency response, environmental and infrastructure management, and the provision of aerial services to rural communities.

Luis Alvarez, Deputy Director of the Australia Research Centre for Aerospace Automation (ARCAA), attended our meeting on behalf of the Fund to receive a cheque from President Denis.
