Drones over Paul Brown Stadium? Some officials like the idea.
The Cincinnati Enquirer reports Hamilton County officials have expressed interest in using small unmanned aircraft for dangerous tasks, such as inspecting the canopy of Paul Brown Stadium, surveying storm damage and searching for criminals.
The Federal Aviation Administration currently regulates such drone use heavily though it has granted several hundred waivers to schools, businesses and government organizations.
Several major cities in the country have purchased drones but are often met with controversy over privacy issues.
County officials said they’d probably wait until the FAA issues more rules on drone use, which is expected to happen as soon as before the end of the year.
