Man Charged After Flying Drone in Flight Path of Aircraft

I’ve noted before that drones are causing interesting aviation issues.  For example, a low-flying drone in Vegas violated FAA regulations.

And the FAA’s new $5,000,000,000 system did not account for drones as an aircraft type.

But this is a case in which drones can actually be dangerous.

According to the Aspen Daily News, not only did a man fly his drone in restricted air space, it was in the flight path of an incoming private plane.

Between this and laser pointers causing so much trouble for aircrafts, there’s a growing number of things people can do on the ground to dangerously interfere with flights.
