However, drones are dangerous. A gust of high wind can send a drone veering off course, resulting in a crash. In addition, drones present a hazard to other aircraft, such as helicopters and airplanes, operating in the same skies.
Drone Safety Regulations
Accordingly, drone safety is now regulated by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). Drone regulation in New York includes prohibition on operation of the aircraft within 5 miles of JFK Airport and LaGuardia Airport.
The FAA additionally advises that drones should not be flown more than 400 feet high. Further, the un-manned aerial craft should not be flown near buildings or bridges.
