National Park Service Warns: No Amateur Drones in Yosemite

The National Park Service has issued a warning to amateur pilots that drone aircraft are not permitted in Yosemite National Park. 

Drones, some of which are available on the civilian consumer technology market, have reportedly been used by hobbyists to film Yosemite’s magnificent landscape, or mountain climbers in the park.

“Drones can be extremely noisy,” the Park Service said, according to the Bay Area’s NBC News affiliate, “and can impact the natural soundscape.” It referred to federal regulations governing drones. 

However, the Park Service will not ban drones used on “official business of the Federal government,” including fire-fighting.
