WPL Publishing Co., Inc., publisher of ConstructionPro Network (featuring Construction Claims Advisor),
announces a valuable new interactive webinar:
Small Unmanned Aerial Systems:
Keep Your Drones From Going Rogue
Friday, October 13, 2017 
1:00 – 2:30 PM EDT
Presented by:
Scott M. Shea and Katherine Dawson Varholak
Sherman & Howard, L.L.C.

Are you flying a drone without a pilot’s license? Laugh if you will, but the Federal Aviation Administration adopted rules recently to regulate the commercial operation of drones. Drones offer extensive benefits to all the parties involved in construction projects, but drones are not mere off-the-shelf toys that you can take out of their boxes and fire up for use. For better or worse, operating a drone is legally considered operating an aircraft in U.S. airspace, with all the attendant regulatory burdens and legal risks.

In this informative 90 minute webinar program, Scott Shea and Katherine Dawson Varholak of Sherman & Howard L.L.C. will present an overview of the operation and regulation of commercial drone operation, and participants will:

  • Learn how to license drones for commercial operation
  • Understand important issues in the safe operation of drones
  • Review records necessary to the efficient and legal use of drones
  • Appreciate operational restrictions
  • Protect against legal risks associated with drone operation
  • Respect privacy rights of third-parties whose activities are observed by drones
  • Understand insurance coverage necessary to protect drone operation
  • And much, much more!
Who Will Benefit?

This webinar is a must for any contractor, owner, subcontractor, construction manager, owner's representative, architect, engineer, or other design professional considering or already using unmanned aerial systems to assist in the design and construction process.
