The City of Destin announced Monday it is one step closer to hosting a drone show in fall 2024 after receiving approval from the Federal Aviation Administration.

  • City Public Information Officer Tamara Young has been working on staging a 200-drone, 20-minute show since February for Destin’s 40th anniversary as an incorporated city.

“We are so excited to work toward a drone show for the 40th anniversary of the incorporated years of the City of Destin.,” Young said.

The city received initial bids of $40,000 for the exhibition. After negotiations, local interest has brought costs down by half.

Destin still needs approvals from nearby Eglin Air Force Base. But Young said the FAA approval represents significant progress for the project.
