"Epic Creative," West Bend advertising agency wins approval from FAA to fly drone for promotional video

WEST BEND -- West Bend advertising agency "Epic Creative" received a license to operate a commercial drone to shoot promotional video.

Company officials say they won approval from the FAA, and they're one of just a few marketing agencies in Wisconsin to offer the service.

Commercial drone operators must hold a recreational pilot license.

Epic Creative's videographer and former FOX6 photojournalist Miles Cooksy obtained one by completing 30 hours of class time and 100 hours of flight time.
