I'm not sure why some places are "reporting" this as new. This was issued to CNN in August 2016.

8/29/2016 8/31/2020 Cable News Network, Inc. (CNN) Greg Agvent (PDF) 107.39 Operation Over Human Beings


Also take notice it was "Revised" in July of 2017.
7/20/2017 7/31/2021 Cable News Network, Inc. (CNN) David Vigilante (PDF) 107.39

Here's a link to the actual waiver if anyone wants to review it

I was gonna post about this but I see it's already here. It just got written up in the Winter 2017 edition of my union rag (NABET-CWA) but it was about Local 41 providing training. The article had stated the approval came in early 2017. Dunno...

About the same time, this waiver got mention on the IEEE's web site, which was all sappy about the slightly different strategy in the blade cants.

Cute bird. Totally collapsible and totally protected (at least from the bottom) blades. But at 1.4 pounds, still quite capable of a concussion if it clocks someone on the noggin.
