    Well, flying low and slow isn't very safe.

    Re: Invasion of privacy

    I'm assuming that since your wife is gardening naked you live out in the boondocks? If that is the case then just to warn you the US Forest Service and US Fish and Game often ignore the rules by the FFA and will fly just above tree top level. They seem to be excused the normal restrictions and they often use planes that do not identify themselves as belonging to either organization. I know because I've seen it happen countless times at the property that I have in the boondocks.

    My dad even thought about painting the roof of his house with the letters F.U. on it but wasn't sure of the legal ramifications of doing so.

    I don't make the laws, but I agree. If it were up to me it would be 1,000 feet over rural areas and 2,500 feet over urban areas, though I think of it more as a safety thing than a privacy thing.

    Nearest airport is around 20 miles away as the plane flies. I can see low flying planes if you are under a take off or landing approach but where I'm at these are just snoopy people looking over my back fence so to speak. They have no respect for my privacy and think being in a plane gives them license to ignore my rights.

Years ago I took a pot shot at one of these idiots but nowadays I just give them the finger. Anyway this is a pet peeve of mine, as far as I'm concerned they are not respecting my property rights. The air above my land should be mine up to a certain altitude.
    I'm actually kind of surprised at you.

    You, Sawyer, could just get pissed off and post stuff on internet forums or you could print up a bunch of flyers with your wifes gardening schedule on them and sell them for $10 a whack at the Cour d-Alene and Spokane airports

    Re: Invasion of privacy

    para 119 of part 91 says 500 feet above ground level. you and i discussed this back when you was ranting over the DEA chopper hovering over your place.

    Now unless your wife is half your age I don't see why anyone is buzzing your place to be a peeping tom. No offense to your better half- you are OLD...

    Nude gardening- I guess, must cause some rather uncomfortable sun burns from time to time...

    Re: Invasion of privacy

    I have to get busy but I would like to hear from some pilots that do this snoopy circling of isolated homes. What gives you the right in your mind. I'll check back at lunch.

    You could always get a permit and put 1,000 foot antennae on your property and force them up or build a skyscraper or something.
