You have control. Be safe, be legal! When you fly a drone, the responsibility is yours.
In the City of Orange Beach, remember:
Hobby drone use is not allowed except by a person on their own personal property or on property they have the express permission of a property owner to use. Hobby drone use is not allowed on the beach.
All Drone Use Permit Applications require a valid Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certification and proof of liability insurance.
Each permitted drone user's flight plan (including those used for special events and film productions) must be approved by the city with a minimum seven day notice.
Each Drone Use Permit Application requires the property owner's written consent to take off, land, and/or operate on the property. For condominium and townhome type properties, this consent can be from the property management company or property owners association.
Commercial or real estate entities that film with drones multiple times a year must receive permission annually with a fee added to their business license fee. Contact the Finance Department for business license information.
