High-Flying Kite Interferes With Air Traffic At Victoria Harbour

The Canadian Press, 06 Dec, 2017
  • High-Flying Kite Interferes With Air Traffic At Victoria Harbour
VICTORIA — Nav Canada says a high-flying kite interfered with air traffic in Victoria's inner harbour Tuesday, causing some flights to be diverted.
 
Victoria police say the kite was flying about 300 metres in the air and it took some time to track down the man flying it.
 
Const. Matt Rutherford says kite enthusiasts and others should use common sense when enjoying their hobby.
 
Rutherford says kites and drones shouldn't fly too high in a city, especially when there is an active airport nearby where planes and helicopters land.
 
He says the incident is concerning, and police will be working with Transport Canada to determine the next steps.
 
Victoria's harbour is used by float planes.
