UAS and drones prohibited on installation

 

UAS and drones prohibited on installation

Warning signs are posted at each gate that state “(UAS) Unmanned Aircraft Systems and Drones are Prohibited on Fort Carson without authorization.”

 On May 23, 2018, the Department of Defense issued a memo suspending the purchase and use of commercial drones on U.S. military installations until cybersecurity concerns could be addressed. That policy remains in effect.

Fort Carson is designated as a "No Drone Zone." There are no areas on post that are authorized for commercial drone operations. The restrictions include recreational hobbyist drones and all types of radio-controlled aircraft. 

This policy does not apply to military drones or military unmanned aerial vehicles operated on post for military training purposes; however, training with them must be coordinated with the appropriate range or aviation authorities on the installation prior to use.  

Anyone operating a drone is responsible for flying within FAA guidelines and regulations and must be aware of where it is and is not safe to fly.
