Super Bowl 2018 is off limits to drones. But it’s not just the stadium where your quadcopter will be grounded.
The Federal Aviation Administration, banned drones for a 34.5-mile radius for the 2017 Super Bowl around NRG Stadium in Houston.
The ban has yet to be released for the 2018 Super Bowl at the U.S. Bank Stadium, Minneapolis, MN, however, it’s expected to be the same ban. A circular area of more than 3,700 square miles is pretty hard to police, but local law enforcement officials are aware of the ban, and NORAD — the North American Aerospace Defense command — is enforcing the ban. So don’t plan on getting some up close shots the athletes or the halftime show with Justin Timberlake!
