The operator has an affirmative obligation to be aware of, and demonstrate that any use of a drone complies with, applicable federal, state and local laws and ordinances. Much of the City of Naples is in close enough proximity to Naples Airport that drone usage in much of the City is generally prohibited.

All operators must follow Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) regulations and notification procedures prior to any operation.

Naples Airport is a Participating LAANC Facility

Drone operators can use LAANC, which stands for Low Altitude Authorization and Notification Capability, to access controlled airspace at or below 400 feet and have awareness of where pilots can and cannot fly.
