The UO is partnering with The Poynter Institute to hold a three-day drone-journalism workshop in Portland. The workshop focuses most heavily in preparing participants to take the Part 107 FCC Drone Pilot exam. The course will prepare the students to study for the exam and teach them the basic skills they will need to read charts and maps, decipher complex pilot jargon and understand airspace restrictions that the FCC imposes on drone operators.
