    We will be vacationing in Outer Banks, NC this summer. Anyone fly out there on the beaches? Was wondering about local regulations and no fly zones. I know there is the small airport in Kitty Hawk and another somewhere that the advertising banner planes fly out of.

    The Outer Banks are a National Sea Shore Park. Drones are not allowed in National Parks.. Thanks to our Federal Regs it is a no fly zone. What a great place that the big boys have taken away from us...

    It is true that in the Hatteras National Seashore drones cannot fly without a permit. Also the town of Nags head restricts flying drones over beach areas in peak season. That leaves about 75% of the outer banks still open. Expect other towns to follow Nags head example. I seriously doubt if the entire outer banks will ever be restricted. And remember that flying over the ocean and taking aerial photos inland from the sea are not within a town, county, or national park domain, unless the park boundaries extend over the water, which in the case of CHNS is not the case
