    Not quite that restrictive, but close. Our event location is literally right outside the 15 mile radius.

    Here are the specific rules around Washington National Airport:

    DC No Drone Zone

    The National Capital Region is governed by a Special Flight Rules Area (SFRA) within a 30-mile radius of Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport, which restricts all flights in the greater DC area.

    The SFRA is divided into a 15-mile radius inner ring and a 30-mile radius outer ring.
    Flying an unmanned aircraft within the 15-mile radius innerring is prohibited without specific FAA authorization.
    • Flying a UAS for recreational or non-recreational use between 15 and 30 miles from Washington, D.C. is allowed under these operating conditions:
      • Aircraft must weigh less than 55 lbs. (including any attachments such as a camera)
      • Aircraft must be registered and marked (if it is not operated exclusively under the Special Rule for Model Aircraft, pending NOTAM change)
      • Fly below 400 ft.
      • Fly within visual line-of-sight
      • Fly in clear weather conditions
      • Never fly near other aircraft
    The airspace around Washington, D.C. is more restricted than in any other part of the country. Rules put in place after the 9/11 attacks establish "national defense airspace" over the area and limit aircraft operations to those with an FAA and Transportation Security Administration authorization. Violators face stiff fines and criminal penalties.

    How about trying to sell club merchandise? Too much of a hassle? Do we have enough?
