H.R. 3935: Securing Growth and Robust Leadership in American Aviation Act

Bill Passed 88/4

Sen. Hirono [D-HI]: Yea

Sen. Schatz [D-HI]: Yea

No actual jets are allowed above New York Jets games.

Context

Mere days after 9/11, the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) banned aircraft from flying near open-air stadiums during certain sports games.

Since then, the rule has been: no flights near an NFL, MLB, Division I college football game, or NASCAR race seating at least 30,000 people, from one hour before it starts to one hour after it ends. That no-fly zone extends 3,000 feet above ground and three nautical miles away.

Exceptions are granted for aircraft operated by emergency services, law enforcement, or the military. That’s why the Super Bowl annually features a flyover of military jets during the closing notes of the national anthem.
