Recreational Hobby 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, the airport has created two forms for submission of information, one for recreational operations and one for commercial operations.

For ease of submission, we are providing the following form to recreational/hobby operators for submitting the desired information. Once the information is received by our office, it will be reviewed and the operator will be contacted if any questions or concerns arise.

If you have any questions/concerns please contact our office.


Unmanned Aircraft Systems and the University of Oklahoma

The University prohibits unauthorized operation of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS, commonly "drones") on University property.  Operators that are considering operations on The University of Oklahoma property should familiarize themselves with the University's UAS Review Committee Guidelines and complete the UAS Flight Application prior to operations.  During the flight, a copy of the UAS Review Committee's appoval letter should be in the operator's possession and available for inspection.
