Drones, also called Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS), are widely used for tasks like taking aerial photos, mapping areas, monitoring farms, and more. No matter the purpose, there are rules you need to know before operating your drone.
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) requires drone owners to register their drones. If you're flying your drone within five miles of the airport, there are special rules you need to know about, and you may need to contact the airport first. Most of Stillwater is within five miles of the Stillwater Regional Airport.
