If you intend to operate a "DRONE" also known as "UAS" Unmanned Aerial System, or a "MODEL AIRCRAFT",  please read the Federal Aviation Administration Regulations and Guidance applicable to this topic. 

We recommend that you review the FAA websites often because this information is changing rapidly.

If you plan to operate a drone within five miles of an airport, you need to obtain permission from the FAA.  The Palm Springs Air Traffic Control Tower can be reached at (760) 322-7500.

Thank you in advance for making safety the first priority:
