Where Can I Fly in Connecticut? - Every Drone Law 2019 - Bridgeport, New Haven, Stamford (Episode 7)

now I get asked all the time about drill

mods and specific states cities counties

so in this pity party series I'm gonna

go over every single state and the drill

laws that exist in that state so make

sure you hit that subscribe button and

let's get into it

oh also this is not legal advice now

either you live in or plan on visiting

Connecticut and want to ply your drum

here are the rules you must abide by now

there's three different parts of this

there's the federal laws the state laws

in the city laws now if you're flying

just for fun a lot not for cash or

cheque doesn't matter here are the rules

you must abide by now if you are flying

commercially skip to this time code now

first you must register your drone

before flight to the FAA Jerome zone

website I'll link it below you must fly

within visual sight your drone must be

under 55 pounds now that is very very

heavy most consumer drones are like

between one and three pounds you must

never fly near another aircraft if

you're flying within five miles of any

Airport you must notify the control

tower and lastly you must never fly near

emergency response efforts now for the

commercial fliers you must hold a remote

pilot's license issued by the FAA you

must register your drone with the FAA

drone zone website again I'll link it

below your drone must be under 55 pounds

you must fly in Class G airspace you

must fly below 400 feet you must fly

during the day or at civil twilight

which is 30 minutes after sunset you

must fly under a hundred miles per hour

what drone goes a hundred miles per hour

I barely drive it 100 miles per hour

you must yield the right-of-way to any

manned aircraft can't fly over people

and lastly you cannot fly from a moving

vehicle unless you're in a lightly

populated area which I'm guessing is

like farmland now these eight things

you can actually get a waiver from the

FAA to void them but you must go through

the legal process now that we got the

federal laws out of the way which are

countrywide remember you always have to

buy by these rules here are the state

and local laws so in Connecticut drones

are banned from flying in state parks

forests and other lands controlled by

the Department of Energy and

Environmental Protection sorry I had to

read that last part studies in

Connecticut aren't allowed to regulate

drone usage but cities that are also

defined as water companies can regulate

drone usage over their cities public

water supply and class-1 and to land as

long as it doesn't conflict with federal

law according to a recent law passed

within this day a water company is

defined as supplying water to 25 or more

people on a regular basis which means

all of them get it up now every law that

I just mentioned is linked below thank

you for watching make sure to fly safely

and if you have any additional questions

just ask I'll see you next time
