Drone Seminar Thursday at the Airport
Did you get a drone this holiday season?
If so, officials with the Gulfport Biloxi International Airport want to make sure when you fly it, it doesn’t land you in hot water.
On Thursday, the airport will host an educational seminar on drone safety and regulations. The seminar will include a presentation from the FAA, Industry Professionals, and experienced drone pilots.
Airport officials tell News 25 drones are becoming more and more popular and it’s important to know the do’s and don’ts. Gulfport-Biloxi International Airport Director Of Marketing Teckie Hinkebein said, “Drones are becoming so common on place. Your neighbor may have just gotten a drone for Christmas. Your realtor may have just used a drone operator to get aerial footage of the homes that she’s showing. People are using them more and more frequently, but very few are completely aware or fully aware of the regulations that are in place.”
Topics discussed will include how high you can fly drones, where you can fly them and more.
The seminar will be Thursday at 6 p.m. at the Gulfport Biloxi International Airport.
