Drones, or unmanned aerial vehicles, are useful in several broadcast operations, including ENG, tower inspections, site documentation, signal measurements, and even training videos. During this hour and half webinar, we will explore these uses and discuss FAA requirements, including how to get your Remote Pilot license, and some of the challenges and opportunities drones can bring to your stations. Sam Wallington, vice president of engineering, Educational Media Foundation (K-LOVE/Air1) presents.
