FAA logo
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has established airspace restrictions over 133 military facilities to address national security concerns about unauthorized drone operations. The specific restricted locations are detailed in a Notice to Airmen (NOTAM) – UAS NOTAM FDC 7/7137, and may be viewed online via an interactive map here.
The Agency is using its existing authority under Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) § 99.7 – Special Security Instructions – to establish these restrictions. The relief provided under § 99.7 is limited to requests from the Department of Defense and U.S. federal security and intelligence agencies based on national security interests.
U.S. military facilities are considered “sensitive” as they are vital to the nation’s security. The FAA and the Department of Defense have agreed to restrict drone flights up to 400 feet within the facility’s lateral boundaries. There are only a few exceptions that permit drone flights within these restrictions, and they must be coordinated with the individual facility and/or the FAA. The restrictions are effective on April 14, 2017.
Operators who violate the airspace restrictions may be subject to enforcement action, including potential civil penalties and criminal charges.
For more information about these restrictions, including frequently asked questions, please visit the FAA’s UAS website.

Phil-

I got the same e-mail.  I tried to open the link referenced in the e-mail and could not get the "interactional" map to open.  I did see all the small private airstrips in my area, but no identified restricted air zones.

I thought that "best practices" as recommended by the AMA were for owner/operators of UAV's avoid airspace around military, water treatment facilities, dams sites, etc.

Yepers, I got mine the same day, they probably emailed everyone on the list....


Legal stuff always confuses me a little (I just need it blunt), does this mean that we can't fly with in 400 feet of these places????  Pfffttttt, If so then the closest one to me is Fort Knox, KY....  :t2030: :t2030: I wouldn't risk flying around ANY  military facilities.....   :face-slap: :0042v1:

I agree Jay, I use common sense when flying, I don't want any thing close unless I'm in my Yard...

BTW: I got the map to open, Fort Campbell is close but not showing to be restricted air space....  :scratching_chin1:
