Launching, Landing, and Operating Drones in Area B

The Presidio Trust allows the launching, landing, or operation of unmanned aircraft (aka "drones") in Area B of the Presidio, provided they are operated safely and in accordance with law, including the Trust’s regulatory prohibitions on frightening or disturbing wildlife, injuring or destroying cultural resources, or creating a public nuisance. Due to public safety and visitor conflict concerns, the Trust also restricts operation of drones at certain permitted special events, including Presidio Picnics.

Activities in Area A of the Presidio are regulated by the National Park Service (NPS). For information regarding the prohibition on unmanned aircraft in Area A, visit the National Park Service website.
