In an effort to maintain the safety of student-athletes and spectators, Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS), also known as drones, may only be flown at ACA races with the written permission of the executive director. With permission, drones may be flown at an ACA event as long as the operator complies with Federal Aviation Administration regulations, as well as additional measures specified by the league. Unmanned aircraft are excluded from league’s liability insurance policy. Operators must carry their own liability policies.
The ACA will limit the number of approved drone operators flying at each event. The number of operators and approval process will be determined on a case-by-case basis. These steps are necessary so as to maintain a managed airspace over the venue and to avoid collisions with other drones and the people below.
