Police investigated a drone flying in the Kapiti Coast Airport vicinity after a plane coming into land spotted it at approximately 500ft.
Airport chief executive Chris Simpson said the activity was unauthorised.
“The person flying the drone had not notified us or sought our approval to fly in the airport air space which is incredibly dangerous,” Simpson said.
