Oshin Drone School Hamamatsu will continue to contribute to the development of drone-related human resources in Hamamatsu City, Shizuoka Prefecture, through drone education, including a school for the acquisition of national drone certification, and will make efforts toward urban development utilizing drones.

<Oshin Drone School Hamamatsu Principal, Tanto Muraoka, expressed his belief that "I have wanted to start my own business since I was a student.

I have wanted to start my own business since I was a student, but my drone life began with only the news that the era of drones was coming, and I did not even know the "d" in drone. Today, drones are being used in many fields, and I feel that they have great potential and significance, but at the same time, we are facing the challenge of a shortage of drone personnel. Our mission is to "educate people to be active in the drone era. Drones are a means of education, and we see them as the best tool for the current era. We also have an ambition to establish 100 Oshin drone bases throughout Japan, and we would be grateful for the continued support of the local community and all of you.

Inaugural Message by Principal Mr. Tanto Muraoka

<Message from Ms. Hanako Sato, CEO of Oshin Dream Co.,Ltd.

Our company name "Oshin" is derived from the main character of a certain morning drama. We have reinterpreted the character of "Oshin" as "a person who challenges himself/herself without fear, challenging endless possibilities toward the future," and we will build our team with this mindset in mind. And we will strive to create an attractive organization that everyone, including local residents, will want to cooperate with.

Greeting by Ms. Hanako Sato, CEO of Oshin Dream Co.,Ltd.

<Congratulations by Makoto Toda, Chairman of Hamamatsu City Council

Prior to the opening of the Hamamatsu School, I actually took a national drone certification course at the Oshin Drone School Tokyo on Izu Oshima. I believe that in the event of a disaster, drones can easily enter places that are inaccessible to people and help to save a person's life. To do this, we need people who can fly drones. I also expect that drones will lead to the revitalization of this Okuyama area, where the population is declining at an accelerating rate.

Congratulatory speech by Mr. Makoto Toda, Chairman of the Hamamatsu City Council

<Congratulations by Mr. Yuri Kawamura, Member of the House of Representatives, Deputy Secretary-General of the Liberal Democratic Party, Deputy Chairman of the Political Affairs Research Committee, Acting on behalf of Mr. Minoru Kiuchi as a secretary

Drones have been called the industrial revolution in the sky and are expected to play an active role in various fields. The opening of a drone school in Inasa Town, which is located near the New Tokyo-Nagoya Expressway and can be a logistics hub, is of great significance. We hope that the school will contribute to the promotion of local industry.

<Akiyoshi Tsuchiya, Chairman of Oshin Dream Co.,Ltd.

We are at a once-in-a-century turning point, where we are changing from cars to drones in the same way that we changed from horse-drawn carriages to cars. In tackling something new like drones, young people will be the ones dancing on the stage, while those with experience will play their respective roles in creating the stage. We hope that young people will play a central role in the development of human resources that can be used throughout Japan and in Asia.
