Generally speaking, the following restrictions apply.  However, if a project requires flight outside these regulations, we can apply for a Certificate of Waiver (CoW) or Certificate of Authorization (CoA) from the FAA.

Maximum Altitude: 400 feet.  This is more than enough for 99% of the missions that we fly.

Flight Hours: 30 minutes before sunrise to 30 minutes after sunset.  We are not permitted to fly over people unless they’re part of the operation or otherwise covered.

Certain airspace within 5 miles of airports will require Air Traffic Control permission.

AED Drone Services strictly adheres to all FAA requirements and guidelines and takes safety very seriously.  Our Pilot In Command will evaluate each operation for safety and privacy, and reserve the right to terminate a shoot if conditions warrant.
