    ► Safety measures and filming conditions.
    Safety is a very important concern. Here are some information regarding this flight:
    - Spotter: the flight zone was monitored in order prevent and avoid mid-air collision with other aircraft that could have flown at this very low altitude (EMS & Law Enforcement helicopter, Banner towing, etc.)
    - Altitude: staying at low altitude, below main local air traffic and outside Santo Dumont airport approach and departure patterns
    - Geo fence: the fly controller has been programmed to avoid sensitive areas by programming GPS "no fly" zone.
