This page is for aerial photographers and passengers who have already contacted Monumental Helicopters to discuss their Washington DC aerial photography and aerial video needs. Please do not attempt to submit forms until instructed.
We will need to request an airspace waiver from the FAA and TSA, as your requested location is within the DC Flight Restricted Zone. Please use the buttons below to download a draft request letter, which will need to be filled out on your company letterhead, signed, and sent back so that we may start the waiver process.
In addition, we’ll need to have the manifest filled out to submit. Please note that once the waiver process has started, there cannot be additions or substitutions to the people named on the manifest. There may be some additional permit approvals needed with the county or town, but we’ll start with the DC FRZ waiver and manifest.
Please allow at least two weeks for the approval process – you have plenty of time until the event, however, if you are still in the process of choosing who will be flying.
When we are closer to the event date, we will arrange to visit the site to determine the landing zone and discuss safety requirements and ground staff.
Seth Clute, operations manager, will be your main point of contact in the future. We look forward to working with you!
