NFL gets permission for limited use of drones
NEW YORK - The NFL's sky-high popularity will now include drones.
The league has received permission from the Federal Aviation Administration for limited use of drones.
NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said in an email to The Associated Press that the drones will not be used on the day of games; the league prohibits the use of drones on game day in stadiums and in parking lots.
McCarthy said NFL Films will be allowed to use drones and teams may film their own practices if they comply with local, state and federal guidelines: "NFL Films will use the unique visual images captured by drones to enhance their filmmaking and storytelling," McCarthy said.
