no drones at A-51

Area 51 bans drones…..your drones, at least.


“The U.S. Government continues to try to cope with the rise of the drones, both those in their own hands and in yours.

Now the world’s most well known top-secret facility, Area 51, is trying to adapt as well.

Ironically, what is surely the most cutting edge of drone-testing facilities in the entire world wants to make sure that you keep your drone in the trunk when approaching its borders.

You can see the new signs that have popped up around Area 51’s edges, clearly stating that it is an officially a no-drone zone in this video shot by the Amateur Radio Club:

It makes total sense that one of the most heavily guarded piece of property in the world, whose secret flight testing is the reason for existing, doesn’t want civilian operated drones equipped with cameras buzzing around its perimeters.

There is also the case of the notorious low-flying HH-60G Pave Hawk helicopters that aggressively patrol Area 51’s edges.

A hobby drone could inadvertently cause one of these helicopters to crash, should there be a collision.”
