UAS/Drones

What you need to know. This is not the pioneer days of drone operations. Alas, we enjoyed it in our own way too. But flying drones near airports is dangerous. Anyone operating a drone must avoid manned aircraft and, according to the Federal Aviation Administration, will be held responsible for any accidents or hazards that result from drone operations near an airport.

For more information, visit FAA.gov. In the meantime, consider these sections which we have excerpted from the FAA. Go to this link for more information.

Airports in Controlled Airspace

For flight near airports in controlled airspace, drone operators must receive an airspace authorization prior to operation. Airspace authorizations come with altitude limitations and may include other operational provisions. Controlled airspace and other flying restrictions can be found on our B4UFLY app.

Automated Authorizations Through LAANC

Part 107 remote pilots and recreational flyers can get an airspace authorization for altitudes below the posted UAS Facility Map grid altitudes automatically from a LAANC service supplier.

Authorizations through DroneZone

You should use the DroneZone to request an airspace authorization if any of the following apply:

  • You want to fly in areas that are in controlled airspace and are not serviced by LAANC (the red grids on the UAS Facility Maps)
  • You are flying under Part 107 and want to fly in a "zero" grid area or above a UAS Facility Map grid value
  • You have a waiver under Part 107 and want to fly in controlled airspace using the waiver
