News Reporting and Events requiring Aerial Views

Most major news and media outlets rely on helicopters to track traffic or report on happenings below.  Helicopter reporting or investigating is also relied upon for search-and-rescue missions or when getting up close on the ground is impossible, such as car chases or hostage situations.  But a pilot who must pay attention to what’s happening below while also operating an aircraft is a pilot whose attention is divided – meaning the pilot’s attention is necessarily diverted away from safely operating the aircraft.
