do’s and don’ts

A look at some of the steps a drone operator can take to pilot the aircraft more safely:

  • Do not fly higher than 400 feet, the limit established by the Academy of Model Aeronautics.
  • Do keep the drone within your eye sight at all times. Do not fly it where you cannot see it.
  • Do not interfere with any manned aircraft.
  • Do stay away from moving vehicles and other people.
  • Do not take pictures of another person’s property without their permission.
  • Do not fly when visibility or other severe weather hampers your ability to see the drone and operate it safely.
  • Do not operate a drone while under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
  • Do contact the airport tower when within 5 miles of an airport.
  • Do obey flight restrictions that may temporarily be in place around stadiums and race tracks.
