Patrick Sherman Bio

Patrick Sherman

Patrick Sherman has been flying drones since 2010, amassing a depth of experience uncommon in such a young industry. He has conducted extensive flight operations alongside firefighters and other first responders and, beginning in 2012, he performed pioneering work using drones equipped with thermal imaging cameras through a partnership with FLIR. An internationally recognized expert in the drone community, Patrick is the author of more than 100 published articles. He is a founding member of the Academy of Model Aeronautics sUAS Task Force, the Oregon State Legislature's Drone Working Group and the AUVSI Cascade Chapter Board of Directors.  A top-rated speaker and instructor, Patrick has taught classes and spoken at events across the United States and around the world, including: CES, InterDrone, AUVSI Xponential, the Drone World Expo, Drones Data X, and many other events.

Patrick is known to fans worldwide as “Lucidity,” the public face of the popular Roswell Flight Test Crew YouTube channel, which has more than 23,000 subscribers and 4.6 million video views. Sharing their adventures online since 2011, the crew promotes the safe, beneficial and non-intrusive use of drone technology.

The Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI) recognized Patrick for his leadership in the industry with an Xcellence Award, given in its inaugural year. The individual award, one of only two presented by the association, recognized him for airmanship and contributions to the Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) industry.
