Sundance copter flights are halted
A Utah county reached an agreement with ridesharing company Uber to stop operating helicopter flights at the Sundance Film Festival.
Summit County said helicopter companies agreed to cease operating in connection with the festival. The companies have also agreed not to conduct the flights without getting the required land-use approval.
A company had said Friday it would resume flights to Park City despite a ceaseand-desist order from Summit County Sheriff Justin Martinez. He said he would consider ticketing or arresting pilots because the companies didn’t get the proper permits to land in a field near homes in the mountain town.
