FAA Declares Super Bowl a No Drone Zone

FAA Public Services Announcements

Super Bowls are known for their $1M/minute advertisements. The FAA, concerned that Drone Nation cannot resist the opportunity to do a fly over or even fly near, has issued Public Service Announcements for Super Bowl XLIX (SFO & SJC), Super Bowl L (SFO), Super Bowl Li (IAH) {and more}.

The FAA has issued its annual No Drone Zone for the Super Bowl (which is included in the FAA APP B4UFLY):

Temporary Flight Restrictions will prohibit certain aircraft operations, including unmanned aircraft operations, or drones, within a 34.5-mile radius of NRG Stadium in downtown Houston, Texas on game day. The restrictions will be in effect from 4 p.m. to 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 5.

The FAA produced a 20-second video that tells people to bring their lucky jerseys, face paint and team spirit to the game – but to leave their drones at home – because the stadium and the area around it is a No Drone Zone. The agency is promoting the video on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and the FAA website.

“Drones are becoming much more popular, but they also pose certain safety risks,” said FAA Administrator Michael Huerta. “We’re working closely with our safety and security partners to spread the No Drone Zone message as widely as possible.”

The FAA is committed to working closely with our unmanned industry partners to educate people about how to fly safely. Two of our key initiatives are the unmanned aircraft registration requirement and the Know Before You Fly campaign.
