Drones in research are increasingly common, yet many operators and administrators may not be aware that the FAA regulates even small (“hobby”) drones and that they are subject to the same airspace regulations as crewed aircraft.  Through this dynamic webinar, the presenter distills the key regulations and requirements you need to know to operate a drone legally. In addition, he covers important considerations, including safety, liability, insurance, and privacy, beginning with an overview of the technologies and vocabulary. This webinar is ideal for researchers and administrators involved in all aspects of drone operations.
