I live downwind from a McDonald’s, so the feeling of desperately wanting to acquire some by whatever means necessary is not an unfamiliar one to me. In this regard, I find the man who used a helicopter to pick up Macca’s in Sydney on Saturday deeply relatable.
“The landing is certainly unusual. Whether or not it’s unsafe is something CASA is having a look at. We’ve got the video and inspectors are reviewing that today”.“There are two important rules. One is that the area that the helicopter lands in must be safe, so it must not have things like power lines, buildings too close or people that are regularly crossing the area and the other thing you must have is the permission of whoever owns the land.”“It’s too early to say whether there’s been any breach of the Civil Aviation safety regulations at this stage. We’re certainly having a look at the video of the landing and take off and we’ll make the proper determination in due course.”
