Hi everyone, I'm still studying up in order to take the test and decided to pop over to the SkyVector website to have a look-see. I'm in the Jacksonville area and noticed some purple rings. Most importantly is one that is 60 NM around Jax (city not the airport). How do I decode the details in this item? (pic attached) I'm guessing that GNV_01/133 is the number attached to look up the details for the DROTAM? Where can I input the code to get more details? SkyVector doesn't really give much info on how to utilize this information. Clicking on the ring makes a new box open with this info: NOTAM UAS Operating Area GNV_01/133 DEFINED AS 60NM RADIUS OF CRG SFC-400FT AGL 1701091542-1702282200.
Hey everybody, just wanted to pass on some info about dealing with the FAA and NOTAMs (Notice to Airmen). I have been traveling around the country shooting with a Phantom 3 Pro for an MTV show. I start the process as soon as production can give me the info.(welcome to reality TV!) You will need a pretty good idea of locations and time frame. First I use "airmap" which is a great app for getting local contact info for heliports, schools, etc. Then I go to skyvector.com, which are sectional maps, to get exact Latitude/Longitude of where I will be operating. Then I call the FAA (877-487-6867) to get a NOTAM registered The FAA will ask you for the following info: - Lat/ Long of area for the operation - Proximity to local airports especially anything within 5 NM - Radius of operation (NM) - Height of operation (AGL) - Date and time (local or Zulu) - your name and contact info - Organization name They will then issue a NOTAM #. I keep this info with me when shooting incase anybody asks me if I have permission, etc. And it reassures the producers that you are doing your due diligence. Hope this helps!
Hi all, I'm still in learning phase and trying to make sure I don't break any FAA rules. I've downloaded the B4UFly app in an effort to make sure I'm not flying anywhere I'm not supposed to. Recently I was in Pensacola, FL and am now near Andalusia, AL and in both places I've run into large swaths of "Special Use Airspace" A-292 (Pensacola) and A-211 (Dothan, AL) that according to the app means I CANNOT fly my drone. I have attached pictures. On the "SkyVector" website these seem to correlate with Caution/Alert areas where there is a high volume of Rotary and Fixed wing training. To me this seems more like an MOA? Is there a way to determine when they end, or if these restrictions are permanent?
