Are there regulations on how low aircraft can be?
There are three scenarios for aircraft: departure, landing, and en route. When aircraft are taking off or landing there are no minimum altitude requirements. When en route, fixed wing aircraft must maintain at least 1000' over congested areas and 500' over other areas. Helicopters have no minimum altitude requirements.
