While I sat sketching Province House last night I became aware that a drone was flying close overhead.
Given that Province House is within the 5.5 km radius around Charlottetown Airport where Transport Canada prohibits recreational drones, and given that it was flying over me, this seemed like something that needed reporting.
I don’t like to be a narc, but I also don’t want drones dropping on my head (to say nothing of drones interfering with airplanes), so I went looking for a way to report this.
Turns out that Transport Canada has a handy Report a Drone Incident form online: you give as many details about date and time, location, and the nature of the drone, and send it off.
As the operator of last night’s drone wasn’t obvious, it’s unlikely that anything other than a data point will come from this. But if nothing else that data point will help to identify problematic patterns.
