Why it’s (mostly) illegal to drone in NYC

Filmmaker Griffin Hammond is an FAA-certified pilot, but there are four reasons he can't fly drones in New York City:



1) FAA Part 107 says you can't fly over people.
2) NYC Parks prohibit drones. 
3) Most of NYC is Class B airspace. 
4) City administrative code: "Drones are illegal"


But there are 5 New York City Parks where you CAN fly: www.nycgovparks.org

Griffin uses AirMap to consult airspace restrictions: app.airmap.io
