Last week, the Edmonton, Alberta Police Services (EPS) of Canada charged an individual with what they are calling “unsafe and dangerous operation” of an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV or drone). The drone was seen operating in a dangerous manner in the downtown Edmonton area, over buildings, roadways, and public transportation stations. The drone was also seen operating too close to the Royal Alexandria Heliport, which is used for transporting patients for medical emergencies. Bennett Alexander Hojka was charged with operating a model aircraft (the drone) without a permit on parkland under a municipal bylaw, and hazardous operation under the Canadian Aviation Regulations. The EPS said, “With the holiday season here, many electronic enthusiasts may purchase or receive a UAV as a gift. Please remember there are regulations for its use and that users should be familiar” with the law.
