About this Webinar

Drones in research are increasingly common, yet many operators and administrators may not be aware that even small (“hobby”) drones are regulated by the FAA and subject to the same airspace regulations as crewed aircraft.  The presenter will distill the key regulations and requirements that you need to know to operate a drone legally. In addition, we will look at important considerations including safety, liability, insurance, and privacy.  The webinar begins with an overview of the technologies and vocabulary. This webinar is ideal for researchers and administrators involved in all aspects of drone operations.
