As in years past, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is reminding the public that the airspace around NRG Stadium in Houston for this year’s Super Bowl is a strict no-drone zone.
According to the agency, temporary flight restrictions will prohibit certain aircraft, including unmanned aircraft, from flying within a 34.5-mile radius of the stadium on game day.
“Drones are becoming much more popular, but they also pose certain safety risks,” states Michael Huerta, administrator of the FAA. “We’re working closely with our safety and security partners to spread the ‘no-drone zone’ message as widely as possible.”
The restrictions will be in effect from 4 p.m. to 11:59 p.m. this Sunday.
