Liberal Police Department Answers Question Regarding Drones in City Limits

Joe Denoyer - October 4, 2017 1:23 pm

The Liberal Police Department has had several people asking about the flying of drones within the city limits of Liberal, KS. The FAA was contacted in order to obtain this answer. What was learned is that Liberal is a restricted area for any flying of drones without permission.

Liberal has a 0 foot elevation ceiling across the city except for a small area on the east side of town where there is a 100 foot ceiling. Any person wanting to fly a drone within the city of Liberal needs to contact the FAA and submit an application prior to the day of flying. This application could take 90 days to process. The FAA website has more information for any drone pilots if there are any further questions. A map showing the ceiling for unmanned aircraft can be found at www.faa.gov/uas/request_waiver/uas_facility_maps/
