The proper operation of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) is critical to the safety of both commercial and general aviation aircraft operating from Lakeland Linder Regional Airport. All owners are required to understand the many regulations that address drone operations. Owners who fail to follow the established rules may face civil and criminal penalties.

The FAA released the B4UFLY mobile application to the public following an initial beta testing period. B4UFLY tells users about current or upcoming requirements and restrictions in areas of the National Airspace System (NAS) where they may want to operate their unmanned aircraft system (UAS).
