    so would shooting on your own property require a license.

      property does require a pilots license .

      Our sport is basically self-regulated so you are not required by law to be a certified pilot. However, proper training is required to safely fly and navigate ever more crowded and sensitive airspace. Understand that the theory is that a pilot operating such a light vehicle that its damage potential to non-participants is much less.

      No effort is made to keep the participants safe - only the non-participants.
