Refuge staff at the Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge have evaluated all existing or requested non-priority public uses to determine if they are an appropriate use of the refuge. The use of manned and unmanned aircraft for recreational or commercial purposes on the refuge is not a priority public use of the National Wildlife Refuge System (Refuge System), as defined under the National Wildlife Refuge System Administration Act of 1966 (16 U.S.C. 668dd-668ee), as amended by the National Wildlife Refuge System Improvement Act of 1997 (Public Law I 05-57). Manned and unmanned aircraft includes, but is not limited to, airplanes, ultralights, hang-gliders, paragliders, parachutes, helicopters, hot air balloons, and other manned aircraft systems, as well as model aircraft/airplanes, powered gliders, drones, motorized aerial vehicles, remotely piloted vehicle (RPV), multicopters (quad-, hexa- and octocopter), and other unmanned aircraft systems.
