FAA Declares Super Bowl XLIX A 'No Drone Zone'

                                                                                                                Going to the Super Bowl? Enjoy the game! But leave your drone at home says the Federal Aviation Administration.
In a 15-second clip posted to YouTube on Wednesday, the FAA urges Super Bowl XLIX attendees to declare the game as a “No Drone Zone.”
  The public service announcement was preceded by a flight advisory issued earlier this month for the Super Bowl on Feb. 1 and states a 10-mile no-fly-zone around University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Ariz., the site of this year’s Super Bowl.
Anyone caught flying within the no-fly-zone on Sunday may be “intercepted, detained and interviewed” by law enforcement with consequences ranging from jail time to a civil penalty for careless and reckless operation of an aircraft, according to the FAA.

it already was.  someone shared in another post this week that any sporting event with like more than 30k people is always a no fly zone for some set radius that i dont recall.  i cant locate post but it was discussed earlier this week in the forums.  as far as my opinion, i agree with it.  anytime there are concentrations of people, then crashes (whether pilot error OR craft defect) can be very harmful.  if it drops in a 5 acre field with 3 people around, you arent going to hurt someone.  not so around mass crowds of people.  and after it almost took 3 of my fingers off last week, you get a healthy respect for what damage it COULD do to someone (not WILL do but COULD).  based upon that, i agree with the policy.

Good! The more that is done to prevent some idiot spoiling it for the rest of us the better IMHO.
There is of course another very valid reason for this. Something the size of an S1000 can lift in excess of six kilos, that's a pair of claymores, think about it . . .
