Found this story to be quite amusing:

I wonder what the charge was, illegal parking? public disturbance?

I'd get AOPA all over this one....How can the city tell someone they can't have an aircraft on their own property?

An aquaintance of mine is the pilot of a local news helicopter. He regularly 'commutes' and lands in his back yard. His biggest pet peeve is the question "Do you have a pad?"...YOU DONT NEED A PAD TO LAND! EVERYBODY THINKS YOU NEED A PAD!!. That was his answer to me when I asked him this question. Apparantly the law reads something like you can land anywhere it doesn't cause a hazard to persons or property or where it is not expressly prohibited to land. I am bracing myself for angry a.net clarifications to this.


I fly boxes. Boxes don't bitch. Boxes don't barf. Boxes don't get drunk and do a number 2 on the beverage cart.

I beleieve Connecticut State law prohibits any aircraft from landing anywhere but an airport except in an emergency. Many other states have similar laws.

There was no ticket involved...just a $10,000 prop...and, as I'm sure you are aware, the loss of my beloved nose wheel pant... Sad

Zoning would play a role here. You could pretty easily make the case that helicopter ops are far outside the scope in single-family residential zoning, assuming this area is sort of "standard" suburbia. If you were out in the middle of nowhere in Texas or Utah, like on a big ranch, wouldn't be an issue (but those areas probably don't have much zoning either.)
