Operators, that are considering operations on the University of Oklahoma property, should familiarize themselves with the University's UAS Review Committee Guidelines and fill out the UAS Flight Application prior to operations. All UAS operation on OU Property require pre-approval.
Operatoring unmanned aircraft systems within 5 miles of the airport needs to be reported to the airport administration and air traffic control tower to be in compliance with the FAA regulations. To assist UAS operators, Max Westheimer has created two forms located on our website under UAS (Drone) Operations. These forms must be used each time an operator intends to fly within 5 miles of Max Westheimer Airport or on OU Property. To help assist the airport in getting the information to the appropriate departments, we ask that the forms be submitted as far in advance as possible. It is important to note, commercial UAS flights have more rules associated with their operations and it is imperative that youvisit FAA Drone Zone to insure compliance with FAA Guidelines and Regulations.
Violators of the rules and regulations are subject to being reported to law enforcement and/or the FAA. Please help keep our skies safe by following the rules and regulations set forth by the FAA.
