So you bought a drone for yourself or for your child because it is one of the hottest items on the tech scene and seemed cool to fly one. But you didn’t know about all the are rules and regulations governing unmanned aircraft. If this is you, consider attending the first University of Hawaiʻi drone boot camp.
The camp is a chance to learn from experts best practices for flying drones including safety issues and legal guidelines. The event is scheduled for March 30, 10 a.m.–2 p.m. in Les Murakami Stadium on the UH Mānoa campus.
Drones are increasingly popular in Hawaii, and some people want to reign in how and where the unmanned aircraft can be used. A bill — HB314 — would ban using drones to collect personal information and stop them from flying over schools, hospitals, churches or police stations without consent. That bill will be in the House Committee on Commerce and Consumer Protection on Tuesday.

Instead of the usual small survey boats, researchers worked off of a large ship and used a hexacopter drone to photograph the whales and dolphins — something that has not been employed before in this region. The leader of NOAA’s expedition Erin Oleson explained that using drones allowed researchers to get better images of groups of whales since they were not disturbed by an approaching boat.
