The Canadian government had released new regulations for recreational drone operators that carry hefty penalties for violators. The new rules apply to aircraft weighing between about half a pound and 77 pounds being flown non-commercially. Under the rules, recreational drones may not be flown higher than 90 meters (about 295 feet) above the ground; closer than 75 meters (about 245 feet) from buildings, vehicles, vessels, animals, people/crowds; and closer than 9 kilometers (about 5.6 miles) from the center of any "aerodrome" ... defined as anywhere that aircraft take off and land. The apparent support for privatizing Air Traffic Control in the FY2018 budget has brought strong reaction from both sides of the issue.

Airborne 03.21.17: Longmont NIMBYs, Lost Orbiter, Airline Transparency

One of the most persistent, if not outright obnoxious, anti-airport NIMBY fights just won’t go away... even after numerous legal defeats and many thousands of dollars of losses. Members of the group Citizens for Quiet Skies in Boulder County, CO are not giving up in their quest to force Mile-Hi Skydiving to stop flying near their homes. In 2015, a Boulder District Court Judge denied every claim brought in a lawsuit by the group, which contends that Mile-Hi Skydiving owner Frank Casares is a nuisance, and negligent in the way he runs the business. The group says the company's airplanes are "unusually loud" when flying over their homes. Judge Judith LaBuda disagreed, and told all parties they should "move on" from the matter, but instead, CQS took the case to the Colorado Court of Appeals, where they were also rebuffed.
