Recreational UAS (Drone) Operations

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, Max Westheimer Airport has created a Recreational UAS Flight Notification form.

We are providing the following form to recreational/hobby operators for submitting the needed information. Once the information is received by our office, it will be reviewed by the Airport Operations Officer.  If any questions or concerns arise, our office will be in contact with you.

If you have any questions/concerns, please contact our office at 405-325-7233 or email us at

Please allow a 6 hours notice of the intended flight.  Please keep our skies safe by following all FAA Guidelines.
