Based on the current information from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), operators of unmanned aircraft systems need to provide notice to the airport operator and the airport air traffic control tower if the aircraft is operated within 5 miles of an airport. To assist in this reporting, the airport has created two forms for submission of information. The forms may be accessed by the links below.



Airport Administration recommends that operators of UASs visit the Know Before You Fly website and might consider the new "B4U Fly" smart phone app from the FAA.
