Yes, that IS my former student Gina Hoffman making some aviation history!

Gina:
Guess you could say all my hard work paid off! I wrote a letter to the FAA in October with the help of a senseFly rep and submitted it online. We waited for roughly 4 months and then I finally got a reply from the FAA granting us exemption from section 334 of the 2012 FAA Modernization and Reform Act giving us permission to fly UAVs commercially for agricultural use. Almost 400 petitions have been submitted and only 26 have gotten through the system. We are one of four granted for Ag usage and the only one in Iowa and even the Midwest!! Yeah...we're kind of a big deal.
