I called the local port authority today to make sure I would not get in any trouble if I flew my Phantom 2 Vision over and around a commercial ship that will be leaving Port. I was VERY surprised when they told me that I cannot do this without the express, written consent of the owner of the ship and the captain. They told me that it is a homeland security issue and communications issue. He said that the Port Authority wanted to do this last year, but were told they could not. Is this true? Can anyone provide me with PROOF one way or another? I would like to think the guy is misinformed, but I am not willing to take the chance and have Homeland Security tackle me!
