Drone School


We’ve been thinking a lot about drones recently at Thunderdome. Tom Meagher, our data editor,¬†and I, his sidekick, lead a committee to establish guidelines for how and where our journalists can fly drones. The FAA is still trying to figure how to legislate drone flights so the legalities are murky. For instance, it is illegal to fly drones out in the open, but flying them inside a university gym is perfectly fine. So that’s what we did. Thanks to David Freid for producing our Drone School video.
