    Certificate Pulled For Drone Operation - AVweb flash Article

    "...his real crime was defying an FAA inspector’s refusal to permit the filming flights. The revocation order says the inspector caught him flying the drone and told him to stop but he didn’t."

    [The pilot] "alleges the revocation is being used to “send a message” to drone operators about the perils of crossing the FAA."

    I stress, I DO NOT ADVOCATE THIS TYPE OF THOUGHT, but Ironically, the message the FAA may be sending is: Don't apply for a drone filming permit (COA) because if it's not granted, you've just tattled on yourself.

    This 'Close Proximity' rule is too open ended! Whats close? 10ft? 25ft? 50ft? What if the people are on private property and were notified of drone filming prior to stepping onto that property? God forbid you go to an RC show and all the pilots get written up because there were spectators watching...
