Pentagon After 9/11
Since 9/11, the FAA has restricted the airspace around the Washington DC area known as the FRZ (Flight Restricted Zone). We work closely with the TSA to fly into the FRZ for aerial flights and video assignments.
We will prepare all the paperwork including the Scope of Work for filing and managing the waiver request with the TSA (Transportation Security Administration). Once all the required paperwork has been filed, it can take 1 to 2 weeks for the TSA to issue a waiver for a helicopter and a minimum of 30 days for the TSA to issue a waiver for a UAS Drone. Once the waiver has been approved, we will plan details for a successful flight.
Even through certain areas are still restricted, we can fly closer than were could before. It maybe possible to now capture your sites.
Flights in the Washington DC Flight Restricted Zone (FRZ) are approved using TSA / FAA Approved Helicopters and UAS Drones
Give us a call and we’ll check to see if your sites require a FRZ waiver.
