OLLYWOOD PARK — Often where there’s an aerial drone, there’s a pilot trying to change perceptions.

Justin Moore, who has lived in Hollywood Park since 2013, is one of those pilots. He has been working with municipal governments and nonprofits to show that unmanned drones can be used for good, despite the negative press they have received after incidents at the White House and a U.S. Open match. “We can’t let a few reckless people paint this technology as evil,” Moore said. “This technology is groundbreaking and it has so many capabilities that can benefit communities.” Currently federal law doesn’t require pilots to register their hobby or recreational drones, but on Nov. 20, the Federal Aviation Administration’s task force recommended

ways to register unmanned aircraft systems. Under FAA rules, drones can’t fly higher than 400 feet, can’t come closer than 5 miles to an airport and must stay away from schools. “Registering unmanned aircraft will help build a culture of accountability and responsibility, especially with new users who have no experience operating in the U.S. aviation system,” said U.S.

Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx in a press release. “It will help protect public safety in the air and on the ground.” Moore added this is a big step towards making it easier to identify unsafe pilots and holding them responsible. Drones flying up to 400 feet can take pictures from a perspective that is rarely photographed and is very beautiful, according to Moore.

One of the most common misconceptions is that drones are being used as stealthy Peeping Toms. Moore said drones are hardly inconspicuous, and sound like a cloud of buzzing insects. Moore, who is on the city’s Economic Development Corp., has used his drone to help promote Hollywood Park, including a series of aerial images to show off the town and a video he created to promote the Fire Department. “Hollywood Park is currently ‘rebranding’ itself as a great place to live, with large oak trees, many deer, excellent Police and Fire departments, (and) parks and recreation,” said Brent Lane, EDC president. “Being able to tell that story and ‘see’ Hollywood Park in its true state is a huge advantage.” Moore fell in love with photography when he was little, and started his own business as a side project, offering portraits, landscapes and nature photography in 1999. He was also interested in flying, and in 2001 he received his private pilot certificate. “Before the drone came out, there was a photography passion in my life, then there was a flying passion in my life, and so imagine my intrigue when a flying camera came onto the scene,” Moore said.
