IMG_7350.PNG Got this from the FEDs...

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.

Thanks for the update!

You say you "got this from the feds"...what does that mean? I'd like to get notified about stuff like this as well. Where do I sign up?

FAA = Feds or Federal Aviation Administration.

You bet! Go to the link below and setup an account with your email address. Then select subscribe, where you can check as many notification boxes as you want.

For those folks in the great White North, it would be Transport Canada = Feds. They should have a similar NOTAM communiqué. I don't know what that would be. But here is the FAA link...

- Cheers

U.S. Federal Aviation Administration

Wilddoktor,
I should have said "Feds" is what we call federal government workers. I typically refer to an FAA inspector as a Fed. LOL

Another map service I recommend is Airmap. They are the company that has partnered with most of the UAV makers to provide restrictions baked into your aircraft.
You can use this to plan your flights and check for any issues ahead of time - AirMap.io
