CVG Media Release

Erlanger, Ky. (February 19, 2018) – Drone operators are now able to operate in certain areas withinfive miles of the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG) thanks to the Federal AviationAdministration’s (FAA) new Low Altitude Authorization and Notification Capability (LAANC) program.Prior to LAANC and other recent technology enhancements, drones were prohibited within five miles ofany airport.

In conjunction with this effort and in order to protect the safety of the flying public, CVG partnered withseveral Kentucky airports as well as Kentucky State Representative Diane St. Onge to establishKentucky HB540, the airport safety law. This law requires coordination with CVG as well as the FAA tooperate drones in critical areas of the airport, primarily the ends of runways during takeoff and landing.

CVG and the FAA have both independently partnered with AirMap to execute the LAANC protocols andprovisions of Kentucky HB540, to provide seamless and efficient coordination and notification processfor drone operators.
