DJI is committed to helping maintain a safe airspace for all our users and the general public. Our GEO System helps customers make thoughtful flight decisions and prevent flights in locations that would raise concerns. However, we understand that in some cases, a user may have special authorization to operate in a Restricted Zone, such as at a busy airport or over a power plant. We are committed to working with our customers to enable authorized flights so that the benefits of drone technology can be fully realized. On this page, you can request Custom Unlocking.

Please Plan Ahead: We will strive to process your request within one business day. Missing or incomplete documents may result in delays. When preparing for your flight, please update your DJI APP and equipment’s firmware to the latest versions. If you have any further inquiries,please contact us at
