Black Helicopters

By Bobby Eberle
People often joke of the "black helicopter" crowd... those who believe the government is watching and will take you away if you get out of line. Guess what? It might not be so far-fetched after all, at least the "government is watching you" part. The Federal Aviation Administration is moving to bring drone surveillance to a neighborhood near you. Is this one more layer of public safety or another step toward government control?

In a statement on the FAA web site, the agency " has been working to ensure the safe integration of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) in the National Airspace System (NAS).

Already, the agency has achieved the first unmanned aircraft systems milestone included in the 2012 FAA reauthorization - streamlining the process for public agencies to safely fly UAS in the nation's airspace.

Federal, state and local government entities must obtain an FAA Certificate of Waiver or Authorization (COA) before flying UAS in the NAS. Now, under the FAA Reauthorization bill, the agency must to find a way to expedite that COA process within 90 days of enactment, which is May 14, 2012.

Here's more... according to the reauthorization bill, public safety agency (police and other first responders) can "operate unmanned aircraft weighing 4.4 pounds or less." The guidelines for such usage are as follows: "these UAS must be flown within the line of sight of the operator, less than 400 feet above the ground, during daylight conditions, inside Class G (uncontrolled) airspace and more than five miles from any airport or other location with aviation activities." Thus, a typical neighborhood would certainly fall under the areas of allowed surveillance.

If only those who knew what they were talking about replied, this thread would still be on page one.

Re: Black Helicopters

Don't know where you are going with this but it sounds like you need to move within the 5 mile radius of a airport.

Maybe the cops could actually catch a rapist, child molester, or even a burgler with these "secret spy planes".

I say that makes free skeet in the sky.

Nothing but ANOTHER invasion of privacy, another step in the police state.

Re: Black Helicopters

I think every house should have a security camera aimed at the house across the street.

We can't shoot any projectiles w/in city limits (I am on the very outer skirts of the city.) There is a farm field just to the south of me on the other side of the road, yet, if we were to shoot anything, any neighbor that doesn't like you could report you and a cop will be on your doorstep to hand you a ticket. If I wanted to site my bow in my own backyard, I could not. Anyone of my neighbors could call me in and I would get fined. I would have to use a silencer on a 22 or 17 cal.
