Having been held for four years, the EDE is the most authoritative, professional and influential drone event in the field of youth education in China. This year it was recognized as one of the 35 national competitions for students of middle and primary schools, technical secondary schools and vocational high schools by the Ministry of Education.

In addition to inheriting the aviation spirit and cultivating aviation reserve talents, the competition will further stimulate the creativity and imagination of the young, encouraging them to explore the future of aviation.
