For flights near airports in uncontrolled airspace that remain under 400’ above the ground, prior authorization for an unmanned aircraft system (UAS), more commonly known as a drone, is not required. When flying in these areas, remote pilots and recreational flyers must be aware of and avoid traffic patterns and takeoff and landing areas. A drone must not interfere with operations at the airport must yield right-of-way to all other aircraft. Uncontrolled airspace and other flying restrictions can be found on our B4UFLY app. To learn more visit the FAA UAS website.
