Drones at Balloon Fiesta

Balloon Fiesta and the surrounding areas will be a NO DRONE ZONE October 5-13, 2019. For the safety of the balloon operators and spectators, the FAA has established a Temporary Flight restriction area that will be effective for the duration of this event. 

The restricted area is a four-mile radius from the center of Balloon Fiesta Park. Click here for a detailed map (outer green circle marks the four mile mark of the TFR).  

If in the No Drone Zone, drone operators will be notified upon powerup. A red screen will be used to indicate to users that they are within the Temporary Flight Restriction area.
