No Fly Zone for Drones
Amberley Village Council passed regulations at its June meeting that prohibits the use of drones on public property and parks. The term used in the legislation would also prevent, "...any unmanned object that is powered (such as with a battery, stored energy, an engine, or propellants), capable of sustained flight, and operated from a remote source." Examples include radio controlled planes or helicopters, model planes, drones, hobby or recreational aircrafts.
The regulations were recommended by the Public Buildings and Parks Committee in response to the increased trend for the usage of such remote controlled aircrafts and drones in public places. Violation of the code section carries a fine of $150 for this minor misdemeanor offense, and repeat offenses within one year of the first offense carries a misdemeanor of the fourth degree.
