  1. Drones for good!

    At least most drones don't have 20 pound windows to drop on school children... http://www.cnn.com/2017/12/13/asia/helicopter-window-japan-intl/index.html
  2. National Heritage Area flying restrictions

    Perhaps there is a care taker or ranger of some sort that patrols the area whom you could ask. If not, try local police/sheriff to see who manages the area. If you can find the management for the area, they might very well know the answer to your question.
  3. Drone School

    I think I was one of those freaks... lol
  4. This recent blog post by skyward shows how they see instant approvals happening. https://skyward.io/today-laanc-tomorrow-utm What's great is that it looks like there will be an option for pilots to use the free version of their platform to make these requests. yeah!
  5. Introduction Letter

    Check out Drone Law Pro, they have lots of templates for purchase...
  6. National Heritage Area flying restrictions

    I read recently that sites such as Statue of Liberty, Hover Dam and more will be getting placed as no-fly zones for drones this month. A lot of no-fly zones for drones are shown here, still need to check your other sources such as Sectionals, NOTAMs, etc. https://faa.maps.arcgis.com/apps/webappviewer/index.html?id=9c2e4406710048e19806ebf6a06754ad
  7. Am I reading this correctly?

    DUDE! Where's my car!?!? Said no movie executive ever...
  8. If you have a data connected display, you should be able to clear on the fly. I did similar early this year.
  9. RPC certificate

    anytime....
  10. Ask enough times...

    Please, go here, zoom in and tell me if the grid lines are the same thickness when looking at the whole state vs just a city vs a single block... https://faa.maps.arcgis.com/apps/webappviewer/index.html?id=9c2e4406710048e19806ebf6a06754ad
  11. RPC certificate

    I got mine within about a month of registering.
  12. Visualize FAA UAS Data on a Map

    Wait, aren't we talking about the government here?

    Also, it's nice to see they've made progress in adding more airspace grids around my area on the arc-gis portal. Definitely helpful in planning authorization requests.
  14. Visualize FAA UAS Data on a Map

    I've had outstanding airspace authorization requests to fly in that airspace since November of last year to fly near the mission in San Gabriel, never did receive it before I left my last job and went to work elsewhere.. I've had other authorizations to fly in that same airspace near Workman Mill Rd and E Valley Blvd. that was approved within 30 days. I would suggest 2 separate requests should be submitted. One for the 50 grid and one for the 0 grid.
  15. Now I want to go find a tower to fly around... Great stuff guys, thanks for expounding on regs....
