FAA: Enjoy The Balloon Fiesta, But Leave Your Drone At Home

TFR Put In Place Through October 13

For the safety of the balloon operators and spectators, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has established a Temporary Flight Restriction (TFR) area that will make the October 4-13 Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta a No Drone Zone.

The TFR prohibits drones within a 4 nautical-mile-radius of Balloon Fiesta Park up to 2,700 feet in altitude from 5:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. local time each day. During these times, you cannot fly your drone without FAA authorization. Further details are available in the drone TFR. Please see NOTAM number 9/8221.

The FAA, in partnership with local, state and federal law enforcement, will actively look for illegal drone operations at and around Balloon Fiesta Park. If you fly your drone within the restricted area without permission, you could face civil penalties that exceed $30,000 and potential criminal prosecution.  

Balloon operators and spectators at the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta who see a drone flying, can report it to event staff, local law enforcement, or call the event command center directly.

Drone pilots should check the FAA’s B4UFLY app to determine when and where they can safely fly.
