Drones in New York

New York has over 70,000 miles of rivers and streams. Adirondack park is larger than Yosemite, Yellowstone, The Grand Canyon and Glacier Parks combined. Waterways and mountains make for great drone video. Sadly drones are not allowed in the Adironack wilderness. Drones have also been banned around the statue of liberty and other national landmarks. It's not all bad news though. There are still many places in New York that you can fly. Below are some photos pilots on our site have uploaded from New York.

New York Airspace

Drones have to share the air with helicopters and airplanes in a professional and safe manner. There are multiple airports around New York that will require special FAA authorization in order to fly near. The rules are different for pilots flying commercially and those flying for hobby. It's important your drone pilot understands these rules. Many airports around NYC, Binghamton, Ithaca, Poughkeepsie and other cities will require this authorization.

New York Drone Laws

Keeping up with local and state drone laws is very challenging as there is no authoritative database for all the laws. We created a database to help but we don't guarantee it has all the laws. In New York City all parks but a few are off limits to drones. In Orchard Park you can not be near open air events or Ralph Wilson Stadium. At a national level, anyone using a drone commercial has to be FAA certified. If you are interested in learning how to pass the FAA test for this, go here.
