Professional Aerial photographers have become heroes to fight COVID-19. Orient Flights and Hindustan University Chennai has inducted willing Professional Aerial Photographers and Drone Pilots in their Drone Team.
The Team is serving Chennai City Police in crowd monitoring and crowd control for the past one week. The team is currently working with IPS Maheshwari, Joint Commissioner South Zone. The drones help in monitoring sealed areas without the need of a police team roaming inside streets. This helps the police in providing safety and easy vigilance by gathering information from a wide area.
The role of drone pilot volunteers and academic team from Orient Flights and Hindustan University is the major reason behind this initiative. More corporates and related industries should come forward to support the team to deliver more services throughout the lock down.
