FAA: Superbowl Stadium is a "No Drone Zone"

I just came across this video released by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) that declares the Superbowl Stadium a "No Drone Zone."

Frank Bi at Forbes writes about the video here, and notes that the FAA has declared a 10-mile no-fly zone around the Superbowl stadium. This ban applies to unmanned aircraft systems, and therefore applies to drones.

This sort of public service announcement is an indicator of the rise in drone use and popularity. And I think that while it may come across as a bit corny, it sends the right message, since people may do many stupid things with drones near stadiums.
