Journalism School Seeking Drone Permit

KSAL StaffSeptember 24, 2013

A journalism school is seeking to use drones to gather news.

The University of Missouri’s journalism school plans to seek approval from the Federal Aviation Administration to resume the use of news-gathering drones.

The federal agency has ordered the university as well as the University of Nebraska-Lincoln to stop flying the drones outdoors until they obtain government authorization.

Scott Pham of Missouri’s university-owned station KBIA-FM said the school will apply for a federal permit known as a certificate of authorization. His counterpart in Nebraska has said the school also plans to seek the federal permit.

Journalism researchers and their students were using the airborne robots to shoot aerial photos and video from difficult-to-reach news scenes.
