For industrial drone pilots like Sale, talk of including neighborhood polices to the now closely controlled drone skies is not welcomed.

“I just really do not want men and women pondering drones are lousy. We have to enforce all these legislation we did not do any investigate about. I think the latest polices are pretty fair for industrial and recreational pilots,” he explained.

At this time it is the Federal Aviation Administration’s duty to law enforcement drone flights. Breckenridge wishes to give their law enforcement that ability, too.

“Would Breckenridge law enforcement officer have the authority to create a drone operator a ticket?” CBS4’s Matt Kroschel questioned Town of Breckenridge spokeswoman Haley Littleton.

“Ideally that’s what we’re wanting at,” explained Littleton.

“I think what we are wanting at undertaking now is performing with them to glance at the ordinance. I think we have a excellent foundation. We want to perform with them to make sure the requires of every person are satisfied.”

Pilots hope the city keeps them in on those people conversations.

“We are hoping we can perform with the men and women, creating the law make it as clear and fair as feasible,” Sale added.

The city council tabled the ordinance at their Tuesday night assembly soon after a interval of community comment. They might bring it up again at their future city council assembly.
