Drones Over Sports Arenas

On October 27, 2014, the FAA updated its ban on airplane flights over open-air stadiums with 30,000 or more spectators to include drones.  For the first time, the FAA Notice also explicitly states that violators could be imprisoned for up to a year.

The ban doesn’t apply to indoor arenas.  Drones are now so small and so easily secreted in a backpack, that operators of indoor arenas also have cause for concern.
