Here’s your annual reminder: the Super Bowl is a No Drone Zone.
The Federal Aviation Administration sent out a public service announcement reminding people that the airspace around NRG Stadium in Houston is a No Drone Zone for the Super Bowl.
This year’s Temporary Flight Restriction will prohibit drones from flying 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.
Can’t keep track of where you can and can’t fly (Super Bowl Sunday or just any day?) Before every flight, I recommend checking in your flight location on AirMap. It’s a useful and free tool to see if you are flying too close to an airport (5 miles is actually broader than most people think!), in otherwise restricted areas such as a National Parks or during special events like the Super Bowl.
