  1. Hey all, my name is Sean. I work for a national engineering firm. Over the past year I've taken the initiative to start a drone service in our firm. I am currently the only Part 107 Certified Pilot in the company. I currently fly an Inspire 2 and will be getting an Inspire 1 for thermal imaging in the near future. I am looking for any advice on streamlining FAA Airspace Authorization (understanding LAANC is not available here yet but hoping for early 2018), as a lot of our work doesn't allow me to plan as far in advance as the FAA would like. Hoping to get some advice to questions as they arise. Thanks!
  2. Exact meaning.

    Hi everyone! I just would like your opinion and wisdom about something that is related to uav operation in Class D airspace. I have submitted the application to FAA for authorization to fly up to 350'agl for customer who's house is located in class D airspace back in August but still no response. After 2 months of waiting I received the update which basically stated that FAA is overwhelmed with applications and it can take more than 90 days to respond. Well it is well over 100 days and nothing! I will re-submit the application. But after checking the Aimap app I noticed that when creating the flight plan the advisory says that "near by airport is in Class D airspace requiring FAA authorization, permissible at or below 200ft. My question to you all is Do the mean that you can apply for authorization but not higher than 200ft or that you can fly even without the authorization at or below 200ft? I'm confused!
  3. Now apparently there will be airspace "vendors" to grant authorizations. Whether or not you will have to pay to play has yet to be announced.... https://skyward.io/skyward-is-an-faa-approved-laanc-airspace-vendor/?mkt_tok=eyJpIjoiTVdabFlqTXhOV1ExWTJVNSIsInQiOiJzSW9KbEtoNnJCWFZOMGpxalo2XC91ekoyYjFQc2hzS0hiZ3FZajdadUpHTnI1Z3Z4T29vcTlcL29ocWRaM0pRVThcL0pRcDQ1NFdYWGRmY2hGaWVVb0ZpQ0gyUzd2VGJGZXRLSndBZ1BrNXh2SmlqTkFPXC9DK01IWkpmZTRJeTF0SlEifQ%3D%3D The trial group of participating airports for 2017 are as follows: https://www.faa.gov/uas/programs_partnerships/uas_data_exchange/airports_participating_in_laanc/
  4. Have you requested a waiver or an airspace authorization from the FAA? If so, I would be very interested to hear about your experience. What were you looking for, what did you end up getting, how long did it take, and so on. I've already gotten an airspace authorization (not as much as I wanted) and am waiting for a waiver of Daylight Operations. How about you?
  5. Need some help from those of you who have processed, or have in process, a request for airspace authorization. 1) I submitted a request today for airspace authorization. Should I expect to receive any response from the FAA with a tracking number or something else that acknowledges my request is in their system? If so, how soon?? 2) Your opinion please - This was my first request - for authorization to fly near a specific airport. There are other airports in my area for which I would like to request airspace authorization. Should I wait until my first request is approved to apply for the others or may I go ahead and apply for the others right away? Thanks in advance for sharing your expertise!
  6. Well... This post started out very differently than it is now, but that is due to a second, follow up call I received. I had an excellent initial phone call with a guy at my local FSDO, Kevin Doty, about airspace clearance authorization process. I had called on Tuesday Jan 31, 2017 to look into whether or not a site was clear of Class D airspace (more on that here). He returned my call just now and collaborated with me on this location, but then the call took a different turn as he started to elaborate on the interpretation of Part 107.41, operation in certain airspace. In his follow up phone call, he confirmed what we all seem to understand in that for any airspace clearance authorization, we need to fill out the form on the FAA website. We had a very good discussion and he was unaware of many of the frustrations we have about the approval process. He said he would bring it up for discussion during the next weekly call he is on where people from all FSDO across the country get on to discuss things. In the end, he offered to follow up for me on a request I've had out there since November 2016 - pretty cool I thought. On that note, I encourage you to reach out to your local FSDO and TALK with someone there, if possible. Ask them if they are aware of the current approval process on the webpage and if they are, ask them if they are aware of the frustrations remote pilots have with it. You might find that they are unaware of these things. Perhaps this will raise enough awareness within the FAA to move things along faster, on the plus side, you'll have a good contact at the FAA to ensure you can fly safe. I attached a zip file containing PDFs that I extracted from each of the regional guides for each area FSDO office phone number - finding that was like finding a needle in a haystack. The more we work together on this, the better things will be for all of us. @Alan Perlman FSDO.zip
  7. ATC Authorization

    Hi, I attempted contacting ATC for an airport whose airspace (Class D) covers my area of interest. I was told that ATC could neither confirm nor deny me entry and that I need to fill out a form and submit it to the FAA for airspace authorization. Does anyone know when this became the process? I thought that we were required to contact ATC directly to obtain prior authorization. It seems to me that this process of submitting with the FAA and waiting for them to give ATC approval to give me approval is inefficient and a hassle. Has anyone submitted an airspace authorization form to the FAA? What was the turn around time? I really hope it's not 90 days.
