Travel Safely on July 4th

As we celebrate Independence Day with family and friends, let’s keep safety front and center.

While preparing your luggage for a flight, remember that fireworks are hazardous and are not allowed on aircraft. Fireworks are not allowed in carry-on baggage nor packed luggage. There are also other items that are used every day that are considered hazardous when brought on airplanes. For a Safe Start, Check the Chart!

Flying a drone?

While you’re enjoying your drone during the holiday, know that it is not a great idea to capture firework activity with your drone.

There’s a new law (PDF) that describes how, when, and where you can fly drones for recreational purposes.

Here are general guidelines for people flying drones:

  • Don’t fly your drone in or near fireworks
  • Don’t fly over people
  • Don’t fly near airports

To learn more about what you can and can’t do with your drone go to faa.gov/uas or download the B4UFLY app for free in the Apple and Google Play store.

About those laser pointers…

It’s baffling but people actually point lasers at aircraft. That activity creates a serious safety risk to the pilot. It is illegal to shine lasers at aircraft and in many instances people can face federal charges.  Save yourself the legal trouble and lose the laser. If you witness someone aiming a laser at an aircraft, you’re encouraged to report the incident. Enjoy the July 4th holiday weekend!
