Things you should know before flying a drone in Michigan

Flying a drone either as a recreational pilot or as an FAA-licensed flyer is a privilege and comes with a lot of responsibilities. Drones have become a vital tool for law enforcement to track suspects and for news stations and for film crews to get arial shots. Steven Durecki is the co-owner of Great Lakes Ariel Video Services and an FAA-licensed UAV pilot. He's been flying drones for 10 years "You need to know what goes on inside of an airport on the take-off and landing areas and the markings also so you are informed of everything," Durecki said.
