Drone operators, both licensed and recreational, are advised that there is an extensive no fly zone over the western half of Bermuda for the Louis Vuitton America’s Cup World Series. The order goes into effect on October 12 and through until October 18 at sunset.

The event organisers said, “ACTV, the production company that will broadcast the event to more than 100 territories around the world, will operate a helicopter with television cameras during this period.

“An Air Space Restriction order has been put in place in the interests of the safety of the helicopter crew, the racing teams and the general public.

“We understand the public is excited about this event and may wish to capture images of it. However, safety must come first,” says William White, Chairman, ACBDA Security Committee.

“The helicopter will be providing dramatic overhead images of the racing and Bermuda, which is something we can all look forward to seeing. We appreciate the public adhering to the Air Restriction Order from October 12 through to October 18 at sunset”

The public should also be aware that the helicopter may be flying at heights much lower than normally allowed in Bermuda and also making rapid maneuvers as it follow the high-speed racing boats.
