They don't want to be hit by birds either, but would operations be grounded if birds were spotted?
So what's the difference?
Easy - the bird has a higher IQ than the drone operator?
And also the bird may have some inkling of self preservation along with the helicopter crew whereas the drone operator has none?

chopjock,

Would you fly your drone in the area if each helicopter had a guy in the back with the door open and armed with a 12 gauge just to even the odds?
