CNN Researching Drones Despite FAA Regulations

Drone technology is opening the world to new possibilities. The Federal Aviation Authority has recently granted rights to multinational oil company BP for the first drone flight for commercial use over US. The goal of the flight is to “improve safety and increase reliability"of BP’s maintenance activities. But drones have many other uses. CNN and Georgia Institute of Technology announced that they will conduct a joint study of how to operate drones safely and effectively. Their effort is aimed at speeding up the legislative process regarding drone regulation. Currently,  use of these unmanned aerial vehicles for commercial and news-gathering purposes is strictly limited by the FAA.

Drone producers, reporters, and journalism professors have proposed various uses for drones, including documenting the effects of disasters and reporting in war zones or other areas that are dangerous for human journalists to investigate. According to current FAA regulations, however, journalists must somehow predict where news will happen 60 to 90 days in advance and then  apply for a permit to use a drone in those locations. News outlets are, therefore, reluctant to use them for both practical and legal reasons. At least for the time being, the drones that could take investigative journalism to new heights are grounded.
