Drones/UAS/Model Aircraft

Print

If you own and intend to operate an Unmanned Aerial System (UAS), commonly known as a "DRONE" or "MODEL AIRCRAFT", there are important Federal Aviation Regulations and Guidance applicable to this topic.  The airport and aircraft industry are concerned about how this fast-growing hobby and business industry is going to safely coexist with the National Airspace System Plan which is managed and controlled by the Federal Aviation Administration.  We highly recommend, to anyone who owns and intends to operate any Unmanned Aerial System, to access the following FAA website links and read all of the pertinent guidance on this topic.  We also recommend that you continuously and closely  monitor the FAA websites because this information is changing and evolving rapidly.

Thank you in advance for making safety the first priority:
