Oh Karen...

Just got told off by a young Karen for flying my drone over a public park, with nobody in it, whilst I was doing a job for a client.

Apparently, being a licensed drone operator, with my radio handy to make sure there was no other air traffic in the area, wasn’t good enough…and I quote, “you can keep saying you’re a licensed pilot but it doesn’t make any difference, you’re not allowed to fly over a public park”.

Did I mention that there wasn’t anybody in the park whilst I was flying, until her dog ran in (off-leash, in a non-off-leash park, but I decided not to be that person) and started barking at my drone, which I then landed back where I took off?

Did I mention that it’s not illegal to fly in a public park where I live?

Did I also mention I’m a licensed drone operator?
