Drone Safety

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

The map below shows areas where drones are either prohibited or require special approvals to fly. For more information on these zones, click here.
