FAA Grants Authorization to Motown Digital for commercial drone operations

DETROIT (June 17, 2015) – A local company is the first in the region to be permitted to use drones to capture aerial video and photographs on local television and movie sets. Motown Digital is now offering a safe and legal solution for those seeking commercial drone footage.
Motown Digital drone operations are conducted by FAA licensed pilots using procedures approved by the FAA to assure safety to people and property in close proximity to aerial productions. Motown Digital’s drone pilots will communicate with local air traffic controllers during many productions to assure safety to air traffic flying in and out of Metro Airport, Pontiac Airport, and other local airports.
Motown Digital’s Dave Scott said his team is ready to get to work helping area producers and companies who need aerial footage and are interested in doing so while compiling with FAA regulations.
Motown Digital, LLC is a metro Detroit digital media production company that specializes in live streaming video, video production, event A/V, website development, and aerial photography/video.
