Philly Joins Cleveland in No-Drone-Zone Club for Presidential Conventions


No surprise here – as with this week’s Republican National Convention in Cleveland, the upcoming Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia will also be a no-drone zone.

According to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), flight restrictions have made Philadelphia and its surrounding communities off limits to all unmanned aircraft from 2 p.m. on July 25 through 5 a.m. on July 29.

The restricted area is a circle of airspace 30 nautical miles in radius around the Wells Fargo Center in downtown Philadelphia, says the FAA, adding that violating the airspace could result in criminal or civil charges.
