Frequently Asked Questions
There is a volunteer firefighter station with a helipad about 2 miles from where I would like to fly my drone. Can I fly my drone within 5 miles of a helipad?
Yes. However, because you are within five miles of an airfield you are responsible for ensuring that the following conditions are met:
- It is safe to fly the drone
- Drone flight will not interfere with manned aircraft
- You maintain line-of-site with your drone at all times so you can see and avoid manned aircraft
- You have notified the operator of the heliport and resolved any safety concerns.
