MHT Issues Advisory for Use of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS)

In light of the growing popularity of commercial and recreation use of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), commonly referred to as drones, Manchester-Boston Regional Airport is advising operators of the procedures for notification and safe operation. 

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has issued specific guidelines for the operation of both commercial and recreational unmanned aircraft.  The guidelines include general operating rules including altitude restrictions, and the requirement to contact the FAA to coordinate flight activity. 

Operators of commercial and recreational unmanned aircraft operating within a five mile radius of the airport must contact the airport communications center at (603) 624-6349 to coordinate flight activity with the Air Traffic Control Tower.  For information on operations outside of controlled airspace, as well as general operating and flight rules, please visit www.knowbeforeyoufly.org
