Unmanned Aircraft Systems

The Portland International Jetport is protected with airspace restrictions to provide a safe environment for commercial aircraft to operate in. We are providing the following information and guidance from the Federal Aviation Administration on Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS).

The FAA has created a very useful website for UAS operators. Please review this website before operating your UAS. This is a link to the FAA's Unmanned Aircraft Systems page.

After reviewing the website if you have any additional questions please contact the FAA directly. Due to a high volume of inquiries we recommend emailing the FAA questions. Please email the FAA at

For phone inquiries please contact the Portland Flight Standards District Office (FSDO) at 207-780-3263. Due to the high volume of inquiries we highly recommend the website or email for responses to questions.

Here is a map with the 5 mile radius around PWM where UAS operation is restricted.
