Today’s question is about flying your drone in a National Park. What are the rules for flying your drone in a National Park? Can you takeoff your drone from within a National Park?
Our caller wishes to know if he can fly the DJI Spark in a National Park. Because he wishes to take off the Spark from the palm of his hand, he feels that he is not breaking any rules. Is this permissible? We also discuss the urgent need for coming up with a new set of rules for flying your drone within a National Park. Thanks to the caller for the question. Fly safe!
