PGC and drones
Apparently the PGC scrapped it's plans to restrict the flight of drones over SGLs because of a memo from the attorney general's office concerning federal preemption. According to the news report in PA Outdoors, the Feds' "own the air space from one inch above the ground to space." My lawn violates federal airpsace. Who'd a thunk?
What's next, an FAA license and registration to fly a kite? Probably commit some kind of felony by letting a helium balloon loose. In the old days, the US Model aeronautics club claimed that flying an RC plane over private property without permission was a form of trespass. This ridiculous new technology has resulted in our loss of privacy and has confiscated our property rights in the area above the ground in which we walk, plant trees etc. As recently as 23 years ago, the pa courts said we own from the depths of the earth, to the heavens above, with the only exception being manned air travel. We are no longer safe from the intrusion into our lives by our neighbors and their toys.
