Good Day World!
I’m down on drones.
Not the one’s the military are using – that’s another story.
I’m talking about much smaller drones.
The one’s that are available to American hobbyists/consumers, businesses, and people with bad intentions.
Rogue drones operators are rapidly becoming a threat to our national security as they interfere with private, commercial, and firefighting aircraft. They invade sensitive airspace and private property — with the regulators of the nation’s skies largely powerless to stop them.
This year, two drones flew illegally near the White House, with one landing on the lawn.
HOBBYISTs or BAD INTENTIONS?
ACCIDENTS WAITING TO HAPPEN
Meanwhile, the lax regulation we have consists largely of an educational campaign that warns drone pilots of the few rules that exist, such as no flights more than 400 feet in the air, or no flights within 5 miles of an airport.
Time for me to walk on down the road…
