  1. Thanks, Ed! I had been wrongfully assuming that Part 107 required local (within 5 NM) airport notification, too.
  2. I just answered part of my question, with respect to recreational flying. On the FAA FAQs, Flying For Fun, answer 2.e: "Provide prior notification to the airport and air traffic control tower, if one is present, when flying within 5 miles of an airport."
  3. I live within Class E airspace with a floor at 700' AGL (according to the regional chart legend), which I interpret to mean that Class G airspace exists from surface to 700' AGL. I'm a bit confused with the requirement (or not) to notify a nearby small airport if I'm operating a sUAS withing 5 NM of that airport (no change in airspace categorization at the airport). And does that requirement (or not) change depending if you are flying as a recreational pilot vs a Part 107 remote PIC. Please cite applicable FAA rules or guidelines. Thanks!
