FAA Grants Additional Exemptions for Drone Use in Film/TV
HollywoodReporter.com reports that the FAA reported that it has received 342 requests for exemptions from commercial entities and individuals.
The Federal Aviation Administration has granted eight new regulatory exemptions for commercial use of unmanned aircraft systems, or drones.
This includes new exemptions to Helinet Aviation Services and Alan D. Purwin for film and television production. It also amended the exemptions previously granted to Pictorvision and Aerial MOB to let the companies fly additional types of small UAS.
Secretary of Transportation Anthony Foxx found that the drones in the proposed operations do not need an FAA-issued certificate of airworthiness because they do not pose a threat to national airspace users or national security.
