Resort Community Bans Unauthorized Drone Flights

Requires Written Permission From Owners Association And The Local Airport

The Sunriver residential resort community in central Oregon near Bend has a policy requiring anyone wishing to fly a drone in the 3,300-acre planned residential and resort community in Deschutes County to obtain prior written approval from the Sunriver Owners Association as well as the Sunriver Airport before flying.

And that permission won't come spur of the moment. The policy posted on the community's website says that potential pilots should plan for a minimum of 48 hours Monday-Friday for your application to move through the review process.

According to the policy, only sUAS under 55 pounds will be considered. Drone pilots must be licensed by the FAA under Part 107, using a Registered and Marked UAS, with a qualified observer, and MUST present a specific flight plan to the airport managers 48 hours in advance.

All flights must be line-of-sight, daylight only, with a qualified Part 107 observer.

Applicants must present a proposed flight plan, location on Sunriver map showing specific flight path (maximum 2000’ from base, maximum 400’ AGL dependent on aircraft traffic pattern). After review of the operator’s credentials and proposed flight parameters, the airport manager will authorize a four hour flight "window" for drone operation. The signed flight plan review must be presented at the SROA office for final approval.

A copy will be retained by SROA, and a copy must be returned to airport management.

Happy flying.
