Hey there,

I am planning a tour for tomorrow here in Massachusetts and found a airport/heliport free spot. The best part of it is that it is the Football stadium of the New England Patroits, the Gilette Statium. According to AirMap and B4Ufly, the area is clear and I do not have to inform any airports.

Now I know that flying over stadiums during an active sports event is prohibited, but tomorrow there is nothing scheduled so the restriction should not be active. However, I do not know for sure if I am 100% allowed to take some footage there.

I would appreciate some opinions of drone users who maybe have already encountered a situation like this.

regards,
peselito

Contact the FAA directly to be safe and get it in writing if they say OK. Be nice to see the footage if so.

I am sorry to disappoint you guys. I checked online with Gilette stadium and drones are prohibited on the property

I will, however, get some other footage with the DJI Osmo and will keep you posted ;)
