I don't know, I fly in new zealand, I imagine so, it was a light plane and helicopter that collided in the hudson wasn't it?
I agree with you though, isn't that the way it is now? I assume uncontrolled airspace, up to a certain height, are what the US rules state. RC aircraft are allowed up to 400 feet in nz. I also agree that provided an rc pilot has the hardware installed to locate and avoid other aircraft, that they should be allowed to go higher, but how many RC planes do you know of that have transponders and tcas installed?
The CAA in NZ has drafted the first copy of the UAV rules that they are proposing. They're very similar this, uncontrolled and controlled airspace are being opened to remotely piloted aircraft, provided they meet the hardware and safety requirements. Personally I think this is great.
I thought cities were restricted zones.
In Aus, the CASA says the same. But 400ft is barely anything. I wouldn't be content with just 400ft while doing FPV. I want to go above the clouds, and I will, because the skies around here are always empty.
