Test Sites


Currently NPS operates sUAS at five locations:

Scheduling the first two test sites must be done 90 days in advance.

If you consider flying somewhere else, please review Requirements and Guidance for Access to and Operations Within United States Civil Airspace by Department of the Navy Unmanned Aircraft Systems. Dr. Yakimenko and Dr. Orescanin are designated as UAS Airspace Access Applicants for NPS. When contacting them, be prepared to supply information as shown in this example. The lead time depends on the class of airspace you intend to fly in (one week to a couple of months).
