Everyone in the US is getting ready to celebrate the Fourth of July, and no Independence Day celebration is complete without a display of colorful explosions. This means fireworks! While it might be tempting to capture video of the light displays with your drone, the FAA wants you to think again and keep your drone away from fireworks.
The FAA wants to remind everyone to be safe and not fly their drones near the firework shows this Fourth of July. Here are general guidelines for people flying drones:
- Don’t fly your drone in or near fireworks
- Don’t fly over people
- Don’t fly near airports
In the FAA’s latest reminder, they also link to the Federal law describing how, when, and where you can fly drones for recreational purposes.
