FAA: The Super Bowl is a No Drone Zone

The Federal Aviation Administration is launching a new public service announcement to let people know the airspace around Levi’s Stadium is a No Drone Zone during the Super Bowl.

Temporary Flight Restrictions will prohibit certain aircraft operations, including unmanned aircraft operations, within a 32-mile radius of the stadium in Santa Clara, Calif. on game day. The restrictions will be in effect from 2 p.m. to 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 7.

The FAA produced a 20-second video that tells people to bring their lucky jerseys, face paint and team spirit to the game – but leave their drones at home because the stadium is a No Drone Zone. The agency is promoting the video on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and the FAA website.

The no drone zone radious is almost identical to last year's Super Bowl flight restriction, FAA spokesman Ian Gregor told NBC News in a report by James Eng that posted Feb 3rd.

“Drone operators who break the rules could face civil penalties and criminal charges,” added Eng.  “And, as Gregor noted from the regulations: " ‘The United States Government may use deadly force against the airborne aircraft, if it is determined that the aircraft poses an imminent security threat.’” - although nothing in the FAA press releases concerning the No Drone Zone include that kind of verbiage.

“With so many drones being sold for recreational use, we want to do everything we can to get the word out that the game is a No Drone Zone,” said FAA Administrator Michael Huerta. “We’re working closely with our safety and security partners to spread this message as widely as possible.”

The FAA is committed to working closely with its unmanned industry partners to educate people about how to fly safely. Two of our key initiatives are the unmanned aircraft registration requirement and the Know Before You Fly campaign.
