For IU’s home opener against Ohio State, I worked with the IU Athletics Department to capture aerial photos and videos of a nearly-full Memorial Stadium. This all followed an application and paperwork process with the FAA and TSA. Ultimately, I was granted a waiver allowing me to operate a drone within the temporary flight restriction (TFR) blanketing the airspace over the stadium. Some of this is outlined in a post I contributed to for the University Photographers Association of America (UPAA).
NOTE: All photos in this post were captured by a drone flying within the temporary flight restriction (TFR) outlined in FDC NOTAM 0/0367 under the authority of FAA waiver.
