Drone and personal aircraft usage laws are strictly monitored and enforced at YVR. These laws help us ensure that we keep people and aircraft safe—at all times.
YVR is a no-drone zone. YVR has had a Drone Safety Program in place since 2015, which includes the installation of our “No Drone Zone” signage across Sea Island. If you use a recreational aircraft such as a drone, be sure to make yourself aware of the rules and penalties in effect for flying around the airport. More information is available at www.canada.ca/drone-safety.
The map below shows areas where drones are either prohibited or require special approvals to fly. For more information on these zones, click here.
