Title: Prohibit or Restrict the Operation of an Unmanned Aircraft in Close Proximity to a Fixed Site Facility 

This action would implement section 2209, Applications for designation, of Public Law 114-190, the FAA Extension, Safety and Security Act of 2016 (130 Stat. 634). Specifically, this rule would establish the criteria and procedures for the operator or proprietor of eligible fixed site facilities to apply to the FAA for an unmanned aircraft-specific flight restriction. In addition, this rule would establish the substantive criteria based on the enumerated statutory considerations (i.e., national security and aviation safety) that the FAA will use in determining to grant or deny a petition, as well as the procedures for notifying the petitioner of the determination made and the process for resubmission of any denial. Lastly, this rule would establish the process to be used by the FAA to implement the unmanned aircraft-specific flight restriction and notify the public.
