Hi Amy,

Sorry about the confusion over your site.

Re your very last statement. No it is not possible. I'm afraid
you have to have an understanding of the world governing
aviation and the air regulations. Fly a model airplane into a
controlled airspace once and get caught and its a slap on the
wrist, do it twice and depending on the circumstances it could
be 5 years or 30 years. A 3-10 pound model airplane can knock a
Cessna 172 or a Lear jet out of the sky quite easily due to the
aircrafts speed.

I have a hard time trying to get people to understand just what
a big deal it is to violate controlled airspaces. No one is
immune. And no there were no UAVs being flown into the airspace
or anywhere else except in some test flight area designated by -
in your case- the FAA and NOTAMed [Notice to Airmen] to indicate
the same to any pilots that checked with either their local
Flight Service, FBO of some Automated Terminal Information
Service [ATIS].

You missed my point re the ARSA. That's from the ground up to
whatever the ceiling is for that control zone. The radar reaches
a heck of a lot further than that. No uncontrolled flying
within-by anybody without permission granted from the Controller
and it gets more intense that that at certain airports. For some
time [maybe even now-especially now] light aircraft [below a
certain gross weight] were not allowed to land at Logan Int. I
suggest to you right now, if the FBI was looking into this
Albany UFO it was to find out who was busting the security of
the control zone. UFOs are up to the airforce.

More later,

Gotta go.

Best,

Don
