Flight-restricted zones are areas that require special application and permission to fly beyond what is commonly available to the general drone pilot. Due to the secure nature of the airspace, Flight Restricted Zones often require us to hire extra crew and personnel, including law enforcement officers for the flight missions. We have extensive experience navigating the complicated process of obtaining permissions and flying these highly controlled and restricted areas including downtown Washington, DC, and nearby suburbs.  Our experience as manned aircraft pilots allows us to communicate effectively with aviation officials and TSA personnel to efficiently gain access to difficult areas such as these.

Flight Restricted Zones Include:
  • Any area within 15 nautical miles of Regan National Airport

  • Designated Critical Infrastructure (such as bridges, dams, and power plants)

  • Military Operating Areas

  • Prohibited Airspace noted as “P-xxx” on aviation charts

  • Sporting Events

Controlled Airspace

Like Flight Restricted Zones (or “FRZs”), Controlled Airspace requires FAA authorization prior to flight in the airspace.  While this type of access is usually easier to acquire than flight in FRZs, In some areas permission can take weeks to obtain. For information on specific limitations and altitude restrictions, contact us for a review of your specific site and its location.
