UPDATE: Drone Operator Identified that causes Black Hawk Crash above Staten Island

Drone Operator Finally Identified.

After weeks of an intense investigation, The National Transportation Safety Board was able to identify the drone operator that crashed his DJI Phantom into an Army UH-60 Helicopter on September 21st.

Though the operators identity has remained anonymous, The National Transportation Board conducted a thorough interview and the drone operator has turned over the flight logs for his civilian drone.

The rate of crashes caused from civilian drones flying in unauthorized air space has been on the rise and most fear will only continue to rise. The Federal Aviation Administration can not stress enough how important it is to not only register your drone but to understand and abide by the air space restrictions they regulate.

If you have a drone and are not registered or need more information on height restrictions, please visit the FAA website for FREE information and how to register.
