Keep hobby drones out of sky over fires.
Author: mundo

=14pxForestry officials reminded hobby drone operators to keep their aircraft out of areas that have Temporary Flight Restrictions (TFRs) as firefighting aircraft operate over a wildfire.

When Drones are in the air, Aircraft can not fight fire.  SAFETY  for all.

The fire fighting aircraft are very serious about this.  If they see a drone, even at a distance, they park everything.

If I were a water bomber pilot, drones would scare the crap out of me. 

And I own one....

Not living in a forest fire prone area nor being an owner of a drone, could someone explain the reason why?  Thanks.

What do you think would happen to a jet engine if it ingested several pounds of foreign matter? Explosive destruction of the engine is quite possible.

IF you are near enough to a fire to use a drone, you are probably in trouble and not from the drone use.

=14pxAnother reminder.:

2) As drone users continue to interfere with aerial firefighting operations over wildfires, the Los Angeles County Fire Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation's Los Angeles field office are working together in a first-of-its-kind drone deterrent program to get them out of the sky.
