Swaziland Flying Laws for Witches

It's the law in Swaziland that witches flying broomsticks above 150 meters high are subject to arrest. When the GOP in Congress hears this, they'll accuse Obama for taking it easy on American witches. 


Swaziland, flying, minimum safe altitude, witch, broom, FAA

Just for the record, while helicopters are specifically exempted from FAA minimum safe altitudes established in FAA REG Part 91, Section 119, witches on broomsticks are completely overlooked. I looked it up myself, just to make sure. (http://www.flightsimaviation.com/data/FARS/part_91-119.html)

Current regulations, therefore, would require witches to maintain a minimum safe altitude of 1,000 feet over the tallest obstacle within 2,000 ground feet of the broom when over congested areas, and an MSA of 500 feet when over non-congested areas.

So, if you see a witch flying below these safe altitudes in the US, call the nearest FAA office immediately. Remember: If you see something, say something.
