    We have one drone workshop left in our series of four workshops. Plenty of seats remain.

    Drones can give your audience a unique understanding of the scale and scope of a story. Join Poynter and our partners at one of these intensive hands-on workshops designed to prepare you and your newsroom for telling unique stories with unmanned aerial systems.

    In three days, we will show you all you need to know about the basic skills and prepare you to study for the Federal Aviation Administration’s Part 107 drone pilot’s certificate.
