Let’s talk drones this week as Rick caught up with Josh Ziering, of Kittyhawk.io at the 2018 InterDrone show in Las Vegas.
Drones in the world of sports is just one of the topics they cover.
Josh is the Founder of Kittyhawk, a drone operations and management solution backed by Boeing. He is also a founding member of the FAA Unmanned Aviation Safety Team and an FAA Part 107 certificate holder.
As an accomplished UAV pilot, Josh has flown all manner of uncrewed aircraft for over 15 years and flown professionally for the NHL, ABC Television, and various manned-aviation airshows.
A recognized visionary leader, he regularly writes about drone-related topics where he eagerly shares his love of aviation and (often-polarizing) opinions on the future of the industry. Josh is oft quoted in news publications and frequently presents at conferences and participates in panel discussions. A self-taught software programmer and serial entrepreneur, Joshua holds a bachelor’s degree in poetry from Arizona State University.
Drones in sports:
The Steelers just erected a Tarp to prevent people from flying drones and seeing their plays. This is the same football team that sells a branded drone.
Stadium and team owners have seen drones as a looming threat for a long time now.
Temporary Flight Restrictions only apply to stadiums when there are games scheduled. So, technically, its not out of the question to film some other teams practices by drones. 4K Video of every play they’re running wouldn’t be a trivial advantage.
-Drone incidents at stadiums.
From drone fleet asset management to realtime secure video streaming, Kittyhawk has all the functionality and integrations needed to tame the chaos of managing your drone fleet. It was great to talk with Josh about drones and at the end about a famous relative of his.
