No “Drones” in National Parks

Looks like the National Parks are off limits for RC aircraft of all types.

“US National Park Service Director Jonathan Jarvis signed a policy memorandum in June prohibiting launching, operating or landing any unmanned aircraft on any park service property.

“‘We have serious concerns about the negative impact that flying unmanned aircraft is having in parks, so we are prohibiting their use until we can determine the most appropriate policy that will protect park resources and provide all visitors with a rich experience,’ he wrote in a statement at the time.”

Really unfortunate.
