The news team is constantly looking for new tools to enhance our story-telling capabilities and that includes flying drones.

But using drones isn't always easy. Many places in the New York region ban them so we only fly only at approved locations.

Our drone pilots follow strict rules so they don't get in the way of air traffic from near-by airports.

The safety of our crews and those in our community is most important to us.
