What You Need to Know


A drone is also called an Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS). Any drone, whether for recreational use or commercial use, flying within a 5 mile radius of an airport must comply with Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) regulations and contact the Billings Air Traffic Control Tower (ATCT) before any flight.

The ATCT can be reached at (406) 255-2762 (week days), (406) 255-2753 or (406) 255-2755 (nights, weekends or holidays).
