DON’T: FLY A DRONE DURING THE FESTIVAL
According to the Federal Aviation Administration, users are not permitted to fly over crowds. The recreational use of sUAS (drones) is the operation of an unmanned aircraft for personal interests and enjoyment. For example, using a sUAS to take photographs for your own personal use would be considered recreational; using the same device to take photographs or videos for compensation or sale to another individual would be considered a commercial operation. You should check with the FAA for further determination as to what constitutes commercial or other non-hobby, non-recreational sUAS operations. http://knowbeforeyoufly.org/for-recreational-users.
