I am pretty sure Santa Cruz is much more than 9.2 Km from Ajijic.

The one time I visited that airport, it was for experimental or home made aircraft. I wonder if this terribly small airport where flight activity is next to nothing counts as an Aerodrome under this regulation.

This is "line of sight" not "line of drive"

Mr google says 13+k going via the libramiento and 12+ going via Chapala. Both routes are very circuitous. I would expect 9.2k would take in most of Ajijic maybe as far as Rancho de Oro

Drone technology is here to stay so may as well get used to it. Lots of things can be used for nefarious purposes. I doubt too many crooks around here are using drones to scope out houses. I rarely ever see any drones flying around here other than occasionally down at the malecon. There are lots of other things one should worry about rather than "drones scoping your house out".

Most of the drone flight software is "geofenced" to all major airports. The drone we use for mining surveys wouldn't even take off within the "geofence" around GDL airport. You would get an error message telling you that you are within a restricted area and cannot fly. The one in Santa Cruz isn't on the list. The drones are also limited to 500 meters in height from your takeoff altitude.

Unless the Federal Government stated that Santa Cruz was exempt I would presume that it came under the heading of "any aerodrome". after all it has to be Federally registered to operate.
Drones are far more dangerous to small aircraft than they are to the monster jets
Spending several years living in the San Nicolas area I used to drive by that airport at least 2x per day and it gets a fair traffic, especially on the weekends. Mostly single engine but nowadays quite few multi engines. Not many experimental.
BTW drones are limited to 400 feet about ground level not 500 metres.

No. I don't have to get used to it.

Bob, I have held a Canadian Private Pilots License since 1972. In Canada they are issued for life subject to a current satisfactory medical exam. It also got me my US license with no exam when I lived in the USA. Under visual flight rules light planes have some rules in that they may not fly lower than 500 feet above ground level over low populated areas and not less than 1000 feet AGL over populated areas. They are restricted to a maximum altitude of 10,000 feet under VFR rules. Above that they need an instrument rating.
It would make sense then that drones are restricted to heights below those that one might be expected to encounter light planes. Hence the 400 foot maximum AGL.

Dave the 500 meter limit is in the guidance software. Every country has it's own regulations dictating maximum allowable heights. There is even different regulations for recreational versus commercial pilots. In Canada the maximum allowable height for recreational pilots is actually 90M. Commercial drones are not bound by the recreational regulations and can get permits fo heights depending on the area you want to fly.

My feelings about recreational drones are the same as those about any other potential invasions of privacy. Some people are ethical; some not so much. Thus, the need for a potful of regulations. I'd like to feel people can have privacy in their walled yards without the possibility of some peeping drone overhead. I think drones should be limited to places normally open to the general public. However, others may disagree.

It appears that the regulations which went into effect Dec. 1st cover the main issues.
