The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) governs the use of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS), or drones, for all recreational, educational, and commercial use. FAA regulations include drone registration, pilot certification, and compliance with airspace restrictions. All University employees, students, and visitors must comply with FAA regulations and CSUN policy in order to operate a UAS on University property or at University sanctioned events.

Code of Federal Regulations / Part 107: Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems

CSUN requires all UAS operators to obtain permission from the campus UAS Committee prior to any flight with a privately owned UAS, or any UAS owned by the University or its auxiliaries. This permission must be granted prior to any flight on University property, or at any University sanctioned events off-campus.
