2019 Piloting
Innovation Award

Introducing Our Piloting Innovation Award

At the 2019 InterDrone conference, we rolled out our inaugural Piloting Innovation Award.
The award was developed to acknowledge organizations that encourage women to disrupt and innovate within the UAS industry.

The Fox Flight team is our first recipient, and Sharri Berg, EVP News Operations at Fox News Channel and COO, News & Operations at Fox TV Stations, accepted the award on behalf of the the team.

Meet The Fox Flight Team

Launched three years ago, the Fox Flight team now has over 95 certified pilots across Fox News and Fox TV Stations. In her acceptance speech, Berg recognized five female Fox Flight pilots for their work in enhancing news gathering efforts through the use of drones.
