The Federal Aviation Administration is cracking down on the use of drones near major sporting events.
Regulating the airspace around sporting events isn't new. Following the 9/11 attacks in 2001, the FAA designated stadiums as national defense airspace, prohibiting aircraft from coming within 3 miles or under 3,000 feet of stadiums during games, reports The Verge. But the agency recently clarified how this rule affects the use of remote controlled and unmanned drones.
