What a joke.

What's the world coming to when the responsibility for a safe flight comes down to a power company?

If you find yourself at 30 ft (or even 100ft) AGL, in a restricted area (or any kind of VCA) and don't take responsibility for what happens next, you clearly don't understand the term Pilot in Command.

I know the courts interpret everything differently, just look at The Stella Awards, but surely commonsense must dictate some accountability to the pilot.

Although I usually agree with what you say, I don't like the agenda you're pushing here Frank (from the thread title). If pilots are taught to expect balls instead of knowing where wires and obstacles may be, tell me how that will make for safer aviation?
