Thanks to Bernabe, a DroneU member working in Iowa, for today’s question. To promote his drone business, Bernabe wants to offer his drone services to a local parade. He asks whether or not it is safe to fly alongside the parade to get drone footage. While the short answer is “No,” we talk about FAA waivers, authorizations and creative alternatives to flying drones in unsafe conditions. Fly safe!
