Description

Drone Journalism Flight School with Travis Fox

The workshop meets on May 19th from 10 am to 4 pm

Weather permitting / FAA permitting

The cost for the workshop is $250, $199 Early Bird New Year deal until Feb 1

NOTE: This class is limited to 10 students


This all-day, hands-on workshop teaches the basics of drones journalism and videography. In the morning, instructor Travis Fox will go over the ins and outs of drones and their applications for journalism, the legal and ethical limitations for flying drones and how to apply for a Federal Aviation Administration’s Part 107 drone pilot’s certificate.

In the afternoon, the class will head to Brooklyn’s Calvert Vaux Park to fly a DJI Inspire 1 drone and capture aerial video footage of the city. Each participant will have a limited time to fly the drone in the park. The flight portion of the class is weather and FAA permitting. We have secured permission from the FAA for the flight in Central Park but the agency can restrict the flight based on last-minute airspace changes, in which case we would cancel the class for a full refund.
