In just a few weeks, federal law will finally permit newsrooms to fly their own unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), or drones. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) recently published its final rule establishing parameters that, beginning on August 29, will permit journalists to take the controls of drones.
This special briefing for the media industry is a must for those helping newsrooms prepare to launch their news-drone programs. Earl Lawrence, Director of the FAA's UAS Integration Office, will explain the final rule and the balance the government has struck between the public's safety interests and the freedom to gather news.
Please join us in person or online on August 4 for this informative FAA briefing and a question-and-answer session to follow.
