The FAA has partnered with several industry associations to promote Know Before You Fly, a campaign to educate the public about using unmanned aircraft safely and responsibly. Individuals flying for hobby or recreation are strongly encouraged to follow safety guidelines, which include:

  • Fly below 400 feet and remain clear of surrounding obstacles
  • Keep the aircraft within visual line of sight at all times
  • Remain well clear of and do not interfere with manned aircraft operations
  • Contact the airport before flying within 5 miles of the airport
  • Don’t fly near people or stadiums
  • Don’t fly an aircraft that weighs more than 55 lbs.
  • Don’t be careless or reckless with your unmanned aircraft

* Please complete our Intent to Fly Request Form and return it to us before you fly.
