    National Parks

    I am in the processing of contacting the FAA about an idea I think may be of interest to drone pilots. I would like to see one day a week or month whereby drone pilots would be permitted to fly missions commercially or for enjoyment in our National Parks. It is a shame that with all the drone pilots, we are prohibited from photographing some of the most beautiful scenery in the country. Recently I was at an event at a State Park that prohibits drones. However, they allowed a vendor in with one of the noisiest generators I have ever heard. All the excuses for not allowing drones in our National or State Parks are weak. When a drone is two or three hundred feet up, you cannot hear it and very likely unseen by man or animal. And there is very little chance of a crash into people. How do we change the laws?
  2. Are there any special regulations governing the flight of drones over National Heritage Areas? These areas are not governed by the NPS although they do receive federal funds through the NPS. I have read extensively and cannot find anything that covers this (in my interpretation). Any help would be greatly appreciated. Rich
