Drone Journalism

The eye in the sky! Our latest addition to our line of professional photo and video equipment is a DJI Mavic Pro.


 

 

 

 

 

Starting on July 1st, 2017 we will be offering aerial photo and video by small unmanned aerial vehicle or sUAV.  We carry a $2,500,000 liability policy for accidental damage to client property and insurance on our equipment.

We are a FAA Part 107 commercial drone provider with a COA and variances for news gathering purposes.

We will never compromise safe sUAV operations. Our aircraft is equipped with external illumination strobes and we have VHF-AM aircraft two way radio capability to communicate with manned aircraft operating in the area and airport control towers to assure consistent and reliable safe sUAV operations.

Our aircraft, a DJI Mavic Pro is registered as a Unmanned Aircraft with the FAA.

Our FAA tail number is N81TV.


Drone journalism is the use of drones, or unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), for journalistic purposes. According to the Federal Aviation Administration, “an unmanned aircraft is a device that is used, or is intended to be used, for flight in the air with no onboard pilot. Under the new FAA rules known as Part 107, news organizations or individual journalists wanting to add drones to their storytelling tools will have to go through training and learn the regulations.


Here is a sample video, a bit of fun showing the maneuverability of our sUAV.

In north central PA and need assistance with aerial photography and video?
