    Possible drone collides with helicopter in Los Angeles.

    A Robinson R22 helicopter was struck Monday night by an object while flying south through Sepulveda Pass in Los Angeles. Operated as a cross-country training flight by L.A. Helicopters of Long Beach, Calif., the aircraft sustained severe damage to the windscreen when it was struck at 2,000 feet above sea level (800 feet above ground level) at about 7:15 p.m. The aircraft immediately diverted to Van Nuys Airport for an emergency landing. The flight instructor, who occupied the left seat, sustained cuts on his hands and knees from the shattered Plexiglas. The pilots were otherwise unharmed.

    "Neither of the pilots saw the object — it had no lights," said Guillaume Maillet, chief pilot of L.A. Helicopters. "We think it was a drone. After talking to them, from what I see from the extensive damage, and the fact that there are no feathers or blood to indicate a bird strike, it had to be a drone."

    Maillet said he'd experienced a bird strike in a Robinson helicopter at 110 knots and there had been no damage to the windscreen. "Our R22 Monday was only flying about 70 knots and the extensive damage with no evidence of a bird strike tells me it's a drone," he said.

    The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is currently looking into the incident and has not officially determined the identity of the object that struck the aircraft.

    If the object was a drone, this incident is the latest in an ever-increasing number of drone and potential drone encounters in Southern California, according to the FAA. The FAA is working on finalizing rules for drone operations in the U.S. A task force on drone registration provided recommendations to the agency just last weekend, which outlined a system to require all drone operators to register their aircraft in an effort to increase accountability and compliance.

    Bientôt des transpondeurs sur les drones ? Et un TCAS en cabine ?

    CHP helicopter nearly collides with drone over Martinez


    MARTINEZ, Calif. (KGO) --
    The California Highway Patrol is asking drone operators to be careful after one of its helicopters had a close call over the weekend.

    Saturday night, a CHP helicopter crew was over Highway 4 helping Martinez police when they noticed a light.

    "They were between 700 and 800 feet above the ground when they encountered a little red light," said CHP pilot spokesman Jim Andrews.

    It turned out to be guide lights of a white drone. It was flying at the same altitude as the helicopter at about 800 feet - the safe recommended height for a drone, according to the Federal Aviation Administration, is half that.

    The CHP pilots were traveling at about 100 miles an hour when they spotted the drone and quickly banked. It whizzed by the left side of the helicopter. Their big concern is colliding with a two pound piece of plastic in the air.

    "Our windshields are just plexiglass. It will go right through a windshield, incapacitate the pilot," said Andrews.

    The pilot and his spotter followed the drone to a Martinez neighborhood where it landed. They called local police to help them find the drone operator.

    Donald Williams lives on the cul-de-sac.

    "Here comes three Martinez Police cars around the corner and the helicopter then put its lights on the guy, and they snatched on to him," said Williams.

    The drone operator was not home when ABC7 News came by. He's a Chinese exchange student staying with a host family. The CHP has a simple message for drone operators: please fly safely.

    "Don't send it out of your visual range. Don't send it out in the dark. You know, if you're going to hover it in your front yard in the dark, I couldn't care less, but what I don't want to see is that thing in my flight path," said Andrews.

    Authorities have turned this incident over to the FAA for possible action.
