I understand NOTAM 4/3621 regarding flying over stadiums (professional staudiums). My focus here is specifically over high school stadiums. Can we fly over high school stadiums during a game. Keeping in mind the laws against flying over people. Is special permission needed from the high school? Is it a law/rule to obtain that or is it a "niceity"? I cannot find any defined literature stating restriction or procedure in the use of a drone over/near a stadium during a game. My circumstances are within CA if that helps clarify juristiction. I am also in G class airspace with no other concern for flight restrictions.
Hi all, Just got an email from Ben Blackwell, a high school student in Gastonia, North Carolina. He wants to start a drone club at his high school, and he launched an Indiegogo campaign to help fund it. Thought this was a nice project, and I felt good about sharing it with the UAV Coach community. Here's the link: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/gastonia-nc-teen-drone-club--4/x/13240473#/ #dronesforgood #stemeducation #giddyup
Here's my first complete video. Every year, our two high schools combine to build a low cost home and make it available for needy families to purchase at a low cost. This year, the home will be sold to a disabled vet. The bathroom is designed with handicap rails and showers. All exterior construction and interior woodwork is done by students. All stills and interior video were shot with Phantom 3 Advanced. Notified Airport tower and hospital heliport. Got permission from neighbors to fly over property. Point of Interest mode for circular flights. Lucked out with soft over-cast lighting at 5 pm. Great colors without using filters. Interior shots done hand-held with Phantom. The gimbal cam makes a very good steady-cam! Edited in Adobe Premiere CS6
Hi all, my name is Bill Kaiser. I am a technology teacher for two high schools in Helena, Montana. I went to a workshop a couple of months ago and got excited about using drone technology with high school students. We are now dealing with the 333 issues and are hoping the FAA drops some love on us this June so we don't have to deal with the licensed pilot issue. We have a licensed pilot in our district, but the idea is to get kids learning and flying the drones, not the adults. Anyway, it sounds like the FAA will probably fix this, but not before school gets out this summer. I've been in contact with my local FAA operations drone expert and, if I understood him correctly, he believes that the new regs will only require passing a written test. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for this. We have already purchased two P3 Advanced with all the extras so we are pretty well invested right now. I'm negotiating with the PE instructors at my schools to fly drones indoors in the practice gym so we don't violate any FAA rules. Looking forward to the day when we can get outside and have some fun! If anyone is interested in sharing high school curriculum materials, I would be very interested. I am currently patching together a OneNote classroom notebook to share with my teachers. It is a composed of all different sources on the internet and anything I can find that is relevant to high school student drone flight. Bill
