  2. 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!
