Today’s episode is about flying over people. Flying over participants of a drone operation is allowed by the FAA. But, who exactly are these “participants”?
Our caller, Rick has come up with an interesting question today. He is wondering how FAA defines “participants” in a drone operation. Can you fly over people if you get permission from them? We also discuss a proposed change that will have a huge impact on drone operations. Is there a possibility that Part 107 will become obsolete in future. Tune in to find out. Thanks to Rick for the question. Fly Safe!
