The Office of Risk Management and Insurance has established Guidelines to help the University community manage the use of UAV at the University and for University-related business purposes.

Risk Management and Insurance must approve all UAV operations at the University and for University-related business purposes.  Please complete the UAV Flight Request Form  and submit it to Risk_mgmt@cornell.edu.  Please also complete an Event Registration Form prior to the operation.   We will respond to your request and provide guidance as soon as possible.

UAV Operators must be authorized by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to operate in the airspace above the University’s Ithaca campus.

Please let us know if you have any questions.
