"Flight rules prohibit dumping any object from an airplane, and the release of cremated ashes over an urban area."

FAA rules [b]do not[/b] prohibit dumping objects from an airplane in flight. Dumping cremated remains over urban areas didn't come up in my ground school, so I'm not sure about that.

I just completed ground school about 2 months ago, and the question came up in class. According to current FFA regulations, it's OK. Why, I don't know.

[b]14 CFR § 91.15  Dropping objects.

No pilot in command of a civil aircraft may allow any object to be dropped from that aircraft in flight that creates a hazard to persons or property. However, this section does not prohibit the dropping of any object if reasonable precautions are taken to avoid injury or damage to persons or property. [/b]

It's legal.
