Jody Slaughter with Titan Aerial Company joined Lubbock's First News Tuesday (June 23) to discuss his company's use of commercial drones in Texas.

Titan Aerial is the first company west of San Antonio, Texas approved by the FAA to be cleared for use of commercial drones.

"Right now we're doing advertising," said Slaughter. "We're doing real estate photography. Car dealerships love having that panning shot of their lot, any kind of business. It really just gives you a different perspective than you're used to."
