Ask HPD: Remote Controlled Aircraft

Question: Can I fly remote controlled craft (airplanes, drones, helicopters) in public schools during non-school hours?

Answer: No one is allowed to remain on public school grounds without lawful business or excuse for doing so. This is considered loitering. Violators can face a fine of up to $100. Model airplanes may be flown only in these designated city parks: Sandy Beach Park, Halawa District Park, Crestview Neighborhood Park, Ewa Beach Community Park, Neal S. Blaisdell Park, Waipahu Recreation Center, Oneula Beach Park, Kawainui Regional Park, and Mokuleia Beach Park.
