Nothing in the block 400-500' AGL. Manned aircraft only above that. I'm paraphrasing of course. You can read for yourself.


If the idiots violate the 400ft level, as well as a line-of-sight requirement now what in the world makes you think they will follw these new, more restrictitive requirements?
