Bend PD Urges Drone Safety After Crash

BEND, OR -- A crash landing, last month, of an unmanned aerial system is bringing drone safety to the attention of Bend Police. No one was injured when the small aircraft crashed into the driveway of an unsuspecting neighbor in southeast Bend, September 16. 


While there are no specific city codes or state statutes for drone operations, there are guidelines from the FAA, including that aircraft be kept in eyesight of the “pilot” at all times, fly below 400 feet and stay at least 25 feet away from people.
