NYPD Aviation Unit ramps up coverage of skies to spot illegal drones

The NYPD Aviation Unit is cracking down on illegal drones, investigating as many as 10 reports daily, reports Joseph Ostapiuk in the Staten Island Advance.

Earlier this year, an illegal drone hit an Army helicopter over Midland Beach, causing a forced landing and considerable damage.

Drones flown illegally can be potential terrorist threats and put the many aircraft in metropolitan airspace at risk.
