    Does this mean that flying drones for recreational purposes is not regulated?

      Hi,

      Thank you for your question. Here’s the answer:

      “The use of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), such as drones, is prohibited on or above federal lands and waters managed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, with specific exceptions.”

      I have updated the story to include this clarification.

      Thanks again,

      RJS

    Airspace is regulated by FAA, not USACE. Does the Corps believe that it can regulate operation from private property on the lake (lakefront) where the operation occurs over the lake? Example, real estate photography / videography?
