Drone photography is being used by everyone from promotional videographers to those who tinker with the latest gadget. But drones have a serious and useful purpose being developed by the news media. They can be a safe and innovative way to gather and disseminate information while keeping journalists out of dangerous situations. Hear how Virginia Tech's Mid-Atlantic Aviation Partnership is working with CNN, AP, NBCUniversal, Reuters, Getty Images, NYTimes, Washington Post and others to test the limits of drones, capturing images from the front lines without unnecessary risk.

Join us as we welcome our speaker:

Dr. Rose Mooney, executive director, Virginia Tech Mid-Atlantic Aviation Partnership
