If you live in Arlington, the Pentagon — specifically, its police force — wants you to leave drones off your Christmas list this year, at least if you’re planning on flying it locally.
The Pentagon Force Protection Agency yesterday tweeted a reminder that Arlington and the area around the Pentagon is strictly a “No Drone Zone.”
Not only is operating a drone near the Pentagon illegal, your drone could be forcibly brought down if it gets too close.
“Drones flying within the Pentagon Reservation may be subject to counter-UAS measures,” the post notes. That and criminal charges would make for a pretty unhappy holiday, the agency suggests.
Thinking of gifting a drone this holiday season? Please know that Arlington County, to include the Pentagon, is a #NoDroneZone. Visit https://t.co/rkgaoxdKPl for more information. @FAANews @ArlingtonVaPD pic.twitter.com/yJpdlapn93
