FAA Warns Drone Pilots – Super Bowl is a No Drone Zone
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has issued a PSA regarding this Sunday’s Super Bowl. According to their website:
“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.”
Levi Stadium is officially a No Drone Zone for Super Bowl 50’s Panthers-Broncos game. It’s unclear exactly why the FAA is mandating a Temporary Flight Restriction, but many believe it’s due to the NFL organizer’s concerns about unauthorized filming of the game.
