We currently have waivers from the FAA to fly within a 5-mile radius of JFK and Laguardia airports. There are still some restrictions such as how high we can fly depending on how close we are from the airports. We also have a night-time flying waiver in New York City.

Examples of other waivers include flying over people, flying over 400 feet and flying within a 5-mile radius of a major airport (Class B airspace). If you require flying in areas and circumstances covered outside of our waivers, we recommend that you let us know at least 2 weeks before the shoot so that we can file a waiver with the FAA and give them enough time to process. The cost for us to obtain waivers varies with the nature of the shoot and numbers of waivers required, depending on the difficulty of the application and approval is not guaranteed. See pricing below.
