ArrowData gets FAA Approval for Aero Journalism

ArrowData has received approval from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to operate drones for electronic news gathering - the first company in the US to be granted that license.

“This approval from the FAA provides tremendous opportunity for our company to pursue AeroJournalism while working with local FAA officials to ensure safe flight operations,” James Fleitz, vp of the Las Vegas based company. “Helping news stations of all sizes with the ability to have aerial video is a game changer. This is a tool that stations in all markets will use to better inform the public and we’re proud to be leading the way in this new industry.”

Through its AeroJournalism program, ArrowData can help news organizations of all types and sizes gather aerial coverage more quickly and cost efficiently than previous technologies allowed.
