Drone Permit

This is a request for a drone permit.  After receipt and review of your application, our office will contact you regarding payment and any necessary documents.  You will be asked to sign a hold harmless form.  Drones weighing more than .55 pounds must be registered with the FAA. If you are flying a drone that requires registration you must have the registration label affixed to your drone and you must have your flight I.D. card in your possession when flying the drone. You will be asked to submit a copy of your flight I.D. card.  A permit WILL NOT be issued without the necessary documents. There is an annual permit fee of $25. The permit fee must be paid in the form of a money order. Cash or personal checks cannot be accepted.

Permits are valid ONLY in the designated areas at the Garret Mountain Reservation which are clearly delineated. These areas are identified on the park map. By signing a permit, you are aware of the designated areas identified by Passaic County, in which you can fly a drone.  If you attempt to fly your drone outside of the designated areas, the issued permit will be VOID and a refund will not be issued. Passaic County will agree to allow the applicant to fly their drone within the park areas identified and only during park hours. Drones CANNOT be flown while a park is closed.

Please note that issued permits are VOID in the event Passaic County holds an event(s) at the Garret Mountain Reservation.  You can view all of the Passaic County events on the website at www.passaiccountynj.org.
