  • Do not put lives in danger with reckless maneuvering, passengers or ground civilians.

Minimum Safe Altitudes

Except when necessary for takeoff or landing, no person may operate an aircraft below the following altitudes;

  • An altitude allowing, if a power unit fails, an emergency landing without undue hazard to persons or property on the surface.
  • Over any congested area of a city, town, or settlement, or over any open air assembly of persons, an altitude of 1,000 feet above the highest obstacle within a horizontal radius of 2.000 feet of the aircraft.
  • An altitude of 500 feet above the surface except over open water or sparsely populated areas. In that case, the aircraft may not be operated closer than 500 feet to any person, vessel, vehicle, or structure.
  • Helicopters may be operated at less than the minimums prescribed in the above sections if the operation is conducted without hazard to persons or property on the surface. In addition, each person operating a helicopter shall comply with routes or altitudes specifically prescribed for helicopters.
  • Helicopter operations may be conducted below the minimum altitudes set for fixed-wing aircraft. The reason? The helicopter’s unique operating characteristics, the most important of which is its ability to execute pinpoint emergency landings during power failure.
