Ok, sorry everyone, I failed here to read ALL of my email, before sending this. Now I see Rich's previous email, which explained the situation fully. You can ignore my email here.

At the same time I will register my extreme disappointment in the state of Virginia which has enacted a law which is causing our county here to change what was a fairly reasonable policy.

Rich, please tell me where this list was published. The reason I ask is this:

Fairfax Park Authority people have told me several times that the sole, ONLY park in the county approved for RC vehicle use is Poplar Ford Park. They have told me it is prohibited at ALL other Fairfax County parks.

However this list and the text preceding it implies that it is permitted in many other parks, where it has already been a problem. I need to know where this was originally published so we can correct this.

Folks - here's a list of parks that fall in the 15 mile No Fly zone of Nat'l Airport - please report violations to Fairfax Co Police -

Non-Emergency 703-691-2131

ALSO!! please report violations to Fairfax Co. Park Authority at <parkmail...>

Not sure if any environmental group was given a heads up on this pending legislation - unfortunate that... Public Hearing after the fact doesn't do much good in my opinion...

Where to Fly (and What's Off Limits)
The Model Aircraft Site at Poplar Ford Park is the recommended site for drone use.

Per Virginia Code §19.2-926.3, park visitors in possession of a UAS may not enter areas where they would otherwise not be able to go (such as posted areas, construction zones, and park facilities - such as athletic fields - reserved for use by others). Please observe the established park operating hours and any posted signage.

To protect Fairfax County’s valuable natural and cultural resources, pilots are encouraged to select sites in areas actively maintained for recreational use, such as mowed fields. Pilots should select sites that fully allow FAA requirements and safety recommendations to be met.

The airspace around Washington, DC is more restricted than in any other part of the country. The following Park Authority properties are underneath the 15-mile DC Flight Restricted Zone, or airspace where the FAA generally prohibits drone flights without specific authorization. This list is provided as guidance only and accuracy is not guaranteed; all pilots should follow the appropriate FAA rules in place at the location and time of flight.
