    The Federal Aviation Association announced Wednesday that Philadelphia will become a "no drone zone" during the weekend Pope Francis is in town.

    At the request of the Department of Homeland Security, the FAA stated they will be issuing a temporary flight restriction for September 26 and 27. The restriction includes model aircrafts, unmanned aircrafts, gliders, parachutes and various other methods of flight.

    The FAA's restriction is designed to provide a safe and secure environment during the weekend. In addition, all flight waivers will be temporarily suspended during the flight restriction as well.
