[Attention]
The procedures for flights over and around defense-related facilities are different from those for other facilities in some points:

・You must report the flight information to the administrator of the defense-related facility as well as the Prefectural Public Safety Commission in advance.
(If you already have the consent from the administrator, you do not need to report the flight information to the administrator.)
