FAA Grants Waiver for Aerotain Skye to Fly over People

This is both great news and of course a common sense decision made by the FAA. These ultralight "airorbs" or blimps, very similar to the one we operate at MSG are completely safe to fly over people. The helium filled lightweight orbs descend slowly should the operator lose radio connection and prop guards are installed to keep hands and fingers safe. Some blimp manufacturers have even encased the motor mounts for full protection. AirCamOne has flown over 100 games for the NY Knicks, NY Rangers and NY Liberty without incident. Looking forward to seeing how this opens up doors for more RC Blimp Operations in the US!
