Capturing the Big Picture
This has been no easy feat. Early on, we coordinated with the tower on the best time of day, when they would be least busy. After September 11th, 2001, we were required to file a flight plan due to new security regulations. Now with the rise of the drone photography, a manned helicopter is by far the safest & easiest way to capture aerial images while working around the 5 runways and busy flight schedule at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.
