The Lighter Side Of The Cloud – Drone Removal Services

The Lighter Side Of The Cloud – Drone Removal Services

Drone Removal Services an Emerging Industry

In light of all the coverage surrounding herculean sized snowstorms and the recent drone use at the X-games in Aspen. We felt today’s lighter side of the cloud comic would benefit with some satirical content to go along with it.

Business Owners in the Drone Removal industry have been finding plenty of work lately, as more and more live sporting events are using the technology. Smart investors are getting on the ground floor of the Drove Removal Industry. ESPN saw that CNN got a new toy, and felt just a little jealous of them. So now the Disney-Owned sports network is getting on the drone camera action themselves. The “head cheese” aka the “big mouse” isn’t coming though, because he can’t stand cold weather.

According to Engaget:

“CNN got the green light from the FAA to use these UAVs for news reporting, and now ESPN’s managed to do the same. The sports network has announced that it plans to use camera-equipped drones for the first time during this year’s Winter X Games in Aspen, Colorado.”

Sports fans planning on attending the X-Games initially expressed concern of being randomly photographed by drones at anytime. Their concerns were relaxed once an X-Games representative explained to them how much both the government and Google use cameras in public to track and spy on citizens daily.

Broadcast stations and advertisers are concerned that drone camera pilot licenses are given out too easily, so some networks say they don’t even plan to use footage from the drones. Of course this is a wonderful use of resources and there’s no reason to think amazing tech advances like these shouldn’t continue.

“ESPN says there’s no guarantee that footage taken by the drones is going to be featured in any coverage of the Winter X Games 2015”, reports Engaget.

Nevertheless, the footage is extremely important to have and cherish. And obviously, the ever-expanding use of drones will continue to create jobs as the technology advances. Drone Removal services are cleaning house, so now is the time to get a job in the industry or invest in it if you’re rich enough.
