Drone pilots are being advised to keep their flying drones far from SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California in the course of Super Bowl 2022 or face the possibility of a penalty of a minimum $30,000. and possible criminal charges. Additionally, drones that are detected within the no-fly zone can be removed from the sky by “deadly power,” according to a flight advisory issued by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).
A temporary flight restriction will be in force until 22:30 p.m. until 8:30 p.m. at PT during the game’s big day on February 13. The flight ban is imposed over 30 nautical miles around the stadium and extends for 18,000 feet upwards.
Drones are also prohibited for a nautical mile within the Stadium, and at a maximum of 3,000ft altitude, the day starting at 10:00 a.m. till the temporary restriction on flights during the game is in effect.
The FAA tweeted an unintentional video on Wednesday that outlines the ban on flights and directed drone pilots towards a webpage for more information.
Security is a must in anticipation of the highly-anticipated game against both the Cincinnati Bengals and the Los Angeles Rams at the home stadium of the Bengals The one thing that law enforcement officers don’t want to be doing is tracking off a drone pilot who is eager to take some amazing aerial photos of the stadium or the game.
A threat to use “deadly violence” against drones which is in the zone that prohibits flying suggests that cops might turn on the drone as a final option, but an in-depth analysis of the situation would need to be taken into consideration because airborne rounds and falling drones could cause greater harm than it does good.
Besides temporary flight restrictions for sporting events like those of the Super Bowl, permanent bans are also in place for areas like airports and national landmarks, government buildings as well as some of the most crucial infrastructure.
