“Broadcasters and Drones – Staying Street-Legal in the Sky”

fhh drone-3This is a reminder that FHH drone mavens Laura Stefani and Jon Markman will be presenting a webinar on the current state of FAA regulation of drones – or, as the FAA prefers to call them, “unmanned aircraft systems”, or “UASs”. The webinar will be available online on Thursday, April 7, 2016 starting at 3:00 p.m. (ET). Registration, which is free, is on a first-come/first-served; there are still some places available. To register, click on this link, which will take you to the sign-up site where you’ll be asked to provide your name and email address. (You’ll also be asked to indicate your city and state and any station(s) you may be associated with.) After registering, you’ll receive a confirmation email containing information about how to access the webinar.

As we have previously reported, Laura and Jon will be presenting an overview of current FAA requirements for commercial operations of UASs, including the latest registration requirements. They will also preview how proposed new FAA rules and pending legislation are likely to alter the regulatory flightpath. And they’ll be addressing the ins and outs of the use of video or images obtained from others, whether commercial or hobbyist users.

This webinar is being presented in cooperation with our friends in the state broadcast associations of Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Hawaii, Maryland/District of Columbia/Delaware, Louisiana, Missouri, Mississippi, Nebraska, New Jersey, New Mexico, Oregon, Puerto Rico, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Washington. We thank all of them for their support.
