Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS), or drones as they are often called, are fun to fly and provide opportunities for aerial photography as well as fun for the hobbyist. It is important to know that whenever you fly a drone at any altitude within 5 miles of Eagle River Union Airport, you MUST notify Airport Management at 715-479-7442 before flying. The Airport office is manned 7 days a week from 8:30am to 5:00pm. Do not leave voice mail messages – you must make contact with airport management to fly your drone within the 5 mile radius of the airport. PLAN ACCORDINGLY.
Please be aware the NEW Small UAS Rule (Part 107), including all pilot and operating rules, is in effect as of 12:01 a.m. EDT on August 29, 2016. MORE DETAILS
