Where Can I Fly in Colorado? - Every Drone Law 2019 - Denver and Aurora (Episode 6)

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

Colorado and you want to fly your drone

here are the rules you must abide by now

there's three different parts of this

there's the federal laws the state laws

and the City laws now if you're flying

just for fun Allah not for cash or

checks doesn't matter here are the rules

you must abide by now if you are flying

commercially skip to this timecode now

first you must register your drone

before flight to the FAA drone 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 thousand you must

never fly near another aircraft if

you're flying within 5 miles of any

Airport you must notify the control

tower and lastly you must never fly near

emergency response efforts now for the

commercial flash 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 a hundred miles per

hour

you must yield it right away to any

manned aircraft can't fly over people

and lastly cannot fly from a moving

vehicle unless you're in a lightly

populated area which I'm guessing is

like farland now these eight things you

can actually get a waiver from the FAA

to avoid 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

abide by these rules here are the state

and local laws so there are no statewide

drone laws in Colorado but there are a

few city ones in Cherry Hills you are

not allowed to fly your drone over city

property public streets trails parks and

public buildings wow that is a lot of

restrictions in Denver all flying

objects are banned in parks not just

drones all flying objects in telluride

drone operators must give permission to

fly over private or public property also

not fly drunk or high you know if you're

flying drunk or high you're an idiot you

are also prohibited from flying your

drone that endangers people or wildlife

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
