Yeah brain surgeon did you read that the pilots last job should be trying to see an 18in square thing while trying to line up a run on a fire? The elevation of that run is whatever it HAS to be. So what pilot should have to waste time re align path take out drone then circle back to make its run? You don't understand the process do you?

What you can't see you can't avoid and what you aren't in control of can avoid you. So drone is above flight path gets sucked down. See how that's a problem. I thought this site was for people who knew shit like math and physics. Pilot should 100% not be having to watch out for drones while navigating a helicopter in a fire zone.

Yeah I'm sure they can come up with a solution. The law isn't going to stop drone dicks. Its not even going to make is possible to destroy them with any kind of ease. What it does is protect fire fighters who, when able, can destroy them from being sued by the pin heads flying them.

Did the summary really just compare estonia to the US? Are you just being general or do you just not at all grasp the political structure and massive difference between US cities. Would never dirve in NYC. But in ohilly if you live clise to transit it works it you dont it pointless. Tallin is 61 sq km. Cities in the US tend to have metro areas in the 100 + square mile range. Philly is 161sq miles. Kind of not comparable to little estonian cities.
