  1. Learned how to read sectional charts (very cool how it's basically a 3-d map and fun to visualize) and found some airspace near me I'd love to fly in to get some film to market/sell. It's class G to 700 AGL. Not a problem, except there is a 500-600' hill. So my question is how does AGL work - if I take off from the top of the hill and ho straight up to 400', I'm technically 400' AGL I believe. Now, if I move to the left or right a few feet and the hill slopes down 10', does AGL immediately fall so I'd be 410' AGL? Or is there a boundary like the tower example - so if I'm w/in 400' feet of take-off I use my 0/home point as AGL (as i'm w/in 400' of the top of the hill).

    Waivers

    Next question, waivers. I guess these are on an as needed basis? You don't get a waiver that lets you fly above crowds from now on because you've proven that you can fly safely? What about the job that pops up and a client needs you to do a fly over of the homecoming football game that is tomorrow night? No way to plan for that? Jake
