According to the FAA, drones are considered unmanned aircraft and, as such, the operators of the drones must comply with certain federal laws and regulations and temporary flight restrictions. Helipads at hospitals are considered airports by the FAA and the laws for drone operators require notification of flights within five miles of the helipad. All three Froedtert & MCW hospitals have helipads. Before flying, call the Froedtert & MCW Access Center at 414-805-4700.
The following maps indicate the five-mile radius around each of our hospitals:
