Heil Talks Drones at IAPD Legal Symposium


John Heil gave a presentation entitled “Can I Park My Drone Here? How the FAA’s New Drone Regulations Affect Your District” at the Illinois Association of Park Districts on November 3. Nearly every unit of local government, including park districts, is facing questions related to drone use. Many drone operators see parks and other conservation areas as safe, open spaces to fly their devices. Heil’s presentation covered the authority that park districts and forest preserves have to control drone flights.
