FAA Reminds Public of No Drone Zone Surrounding Super Bowl Location

The FAA sent out a public service announcement saying no drones will be allowed anywhere near NRG Stadium in Houston.

The Federal Aviation Administration is bent on ensuring no drones are anywhere near Super Bowl LI, releasing a public service announcement reminding the public that the airspace around NRG Stadium in Houston is a No Drone Zone for the big game.

Temporary Flight Restrictions will not allow certain aircraft operations, including drones, within a 34.5-mile radius of NRG Stadium in Houston on game day. The restrictions will go into effect from 4 p.m. to 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 5. "Drones are becoming much more popular, but they also pose certain safety risks," said FAA Administrator Michael Huerta. "We're working closely with our safety and security partners to spread the No Drone Zone message as widely as possible."

Similarly, the city of Houston announced Super Bowl safety zones and street closures that have been in effect since Jan. 13 and will be in place through Feb. 8.
