The Federal Aviation Administration is launching a new public service announcement to let people know the airspace around NRG Stadium is a No Drone Zone during Super Bowl 51.
Temporary Flight Restrictions will prohibit certain aircraft operations, including unmanned aircraft operations, within a 32-mile radius of the stadium in Houston, Texas. on game day. The restrictions will be in effect from 2 p.m. to 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 7.
The FAA produced a 20-second video that tells people to bring their lucky jerseys, face paint and team spirit to the game - but leave their drones at home because the stadium is a No Drone Zone. The agency is promoting the video on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and the FAA website.
“With so many drones being sold for recreational use, we want to do everything we can to get the word out that the game is a No Drone Zone,” said FAA Administrator Michael Huerta. “We’re working closely with our safety and security partners to spread this message as widely as possible.”
