Man charged with flying drone under a Calgary International Airport flight path

CALGARY — A Calgary man has been charged after a drone was flown under the flight path of a Calgary International Airport runway.

Police say a suspect was seen in a public park on Sunday that is close to the flight path.

Officers say such remote piloted drones can endanger lives, aircraft and property if flown unsafely.

Syed Shah, who is 25, has been charged with interfering with a navigation facility to endanger the safety of aircraft.

He is to appear in court next week. (CHQR)
