    I would sign but I'm in Canada.
    Good luck, I'm sure we are next.

    I'm torn on this one. I'd like to fly in National Parks, but so would a thousand other people. I don't want to be competing for airspace. Then the noise and annoyance that bother everyone else with that many pilots will only spread negativity of drones that don't need any help doing so.

    I like the permit idea actually. That has merit. I've signed it.

    Does anybody know if the bans apply to National Forest as well? They are marked differently on maps. I don't find anything yet that states "forest" only "park" and "park lands".

    The National Forest thing has come up a number of times. I think the consensus is there is no ban in National Forests. Also, if you go to airmap.io, there is no restriction shown in National Forests.

    "There are simply no good places for drone owners to fly their cameras if we can not do so in the national parks." I respectively disagree...

    Not until we can reduced the sound level of our current angry bee quad.
    People I believe tend to enjoy the quiet and peaceful environment a park bring, myself included.

    Just to be fair
