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.

In Class E airspace with an airport with a surface level of 700ft, we do not need permission to fly to our usual 400 ft. Heres my example below.

This being said I am clear to fly where ever I please, of course keeping an eye out for any aircrafts and without hitting Class D (just has to be said ).

I am supposed to be receiving my new Phantom 3 today and I think DJI provides a mapping application, but was wondering if anyone has any insight into the accuracy of all the ones that are out there.

Need help with this whole process, and here is my dilemma, any help will be appreciated: I live in a heavily saturated area, there are 7-12 overlapping vicinity conflicts, depending on which location I intend to shoot. (Using the 5NM towered airport / 3 NM uncontrolled airport / 2 NM heliport model) Do I need a COA/LOA with each of these operations before I can fly using my 333 exemption, or do I just need to work with the FAA towers for the relief to operate near the underlying heliports/airports/seaplane bas
