    Was driving on the Natchez Trace Pkwy a few weeks ago with the top down and saw this sign on the way back. At the South end of the Hwy 100 bridge. Nothing on the North end (Southbound side), but there is a parking lot on that end. Maybe they don't want people walking out on the bridge fron the non-parking end? There was no shortage of crazy tourists doing it anyhow. Just thought it was interesting. My first encounter with a no-drone sign. Was out driving the car anyhow, not looking to fly my drone, so...no skin off my nose.

    I don't see a "no drone flying" sign. I see, "no DJI drone flying". My Q doesn't look like that. (smile)

    I thought the sign ment " NO DRONE SHOOTING"...or you are not supposed to shoot at drones in that area....

    Isn’t Natchez Trace a natl. park or monument? If so it makes sense, if not just remember the FAA controls the NAS not another agency. They can restrict you from launching/ landing in their land but not overflying it. Aircraft overfly Natl. Parks on a routine basis, they don’t fly around

    I've seen many areas with these signs posted. To date I know of no National Parks where drone flight is permitted. If you obtain the proper certificate and file for an exception you can fly in Mational Parks but you have to file a flight plan which yoh must follow. I recommend finding an insurance carrier that's reputable and having an insurance certificate active. Some insurers are such that you call or use an app and can activate insurance for as little as an hour of coverage. BLM does permit flight in almost all areas. Many times that's more spectacular than in National Parks.

    You are correct IF you launch or land in the Natl. Park. Overflight is a whole different matter. The Park Service does NOT CONTROL THE NAS. No commercial, military, or private aircraft has to get permission to overfly, same for a drone! Check the law
