Hi, I was flying my drone yesterday at Bryant Park last night, and a security guard came by to tell me that I have to land it. He told me I am not allowed to fly things in the park according to park rules. I asked him to show me the rule book, which had a section on prohibited uses that listed aviation. (Clause pasted and link provided below for details.) The rule applies to all parks managed by the New York City Department of Parks & Recreation, including Central Park. I never had this issue until yesterday and was curious if this rule actually applies to drones. The rule, quoted below, was probably aimed at manned vehicles, much larger in size, and lists airplane, balloon, parachute, hang glider. But it does say "any other aerial device", so drones / quadcopters could arguably be included as well. Does any of you have any legal / professional views or opinions? Thanks Source: http://www.nycgovparks.org/rules/section-1-04 §1-04 Prohibited Uses e. Aviation No person shall voluntarily bring, land or cause to alight within or upon any park, any airplane, balloon, parachute, hang glider, or other aerial device, except that certain areas may be designated appropriate landing places for medical evacuation helicopters. For the purposes of this subdivision (e), voluntarily shall mean anything other than a forced landing caused by mechanical or structural failure of the aircraft or other aerial device.
