  1. Asking for...a friend...this one is a doozy (Refer to Figure 20, area 1.) You're hired to inspect a group of structures that are under construction 9 statute miles (SM) south of Norfolk International airport. What's the highest you're allowed to fly without needing to ask for additional FAA permission? A) 470 ft. MSL B) 853 ft. AGL - this is what we have marked as the right answer, but I'm now questioning it C) 1,200 ft. MSL The tower in question is 453 ft. AGL. While the Part 107 regulations state a maximum altitude of 400 ft. AGL, you’re allowed to fly higher than
  2. Intro & background: I've been researching my up and coming first job here with my part 107. It is a military contract with the local authority. Location of Flight: Within R-2905B airspace just south (outside) of PAM Class D. (I am not authorized to give exact long/lat) Question: PAM (Tyndall AFB) is not yet on LAANC, and FAA Drone Zone doesn't include restricted airspace. The chart supplements advise contacting APP (approach) at the frequency listed. Is this that scenario where I am going to be forced into having 2-way comms with PAM APP? Trying to avoid that $300 expenditure b
  3. Hey Pilots! I had to do some airspace research for an upcoming and I found this great resource for drone airspace that is administered directly from the FAA. Here is the link: https://faa.maps.arcgis.com/apps/webappviewer/index.html?id=9c2e4406710048e19806ebf6a06754ad What I like about it is that it tells you: 1. Airspace Class 2. The Ceiling 3. Associated Airport (in case you need to call in) 4. And if it is LAANC ready or not ready I hope this helps pilots in the field and those that are studying for their Part 107 test. Let me know your thoughts

  5. Have you requested a waiver or an airspace authorization from the FAA? If so, I would be very interested to hear about your experience. What were you looking for, what did you end up getting, how long did it take, and so on. I've already gotten an airspace authorization (not as much as I wanted) and am waiting for a waiver of Daylight Operations. How about you?
  6. Though my questions and thoughts could fit in several discussion forums, particularly the Real Estate one, I decided I'd throw this out here since it also has a direct bearing on regulations, restricted airspace, etc.. An ongoing issue I have in the area I am based in (and I’m sure most licensed sUAV operators have everywhere) is trying to compete for work with unlicensed drone operators doing commercial work as well as even licensed operators not getting the proper authorization to fly in restricted air spaces. Charlotte is particularly difficult with uptown being less than 5 miles
  7. Hi everyone, I am preparing to apply for an airspace authorization that covers a wide area and encompasses 2 airports, SeaTac (B) and Boeing Field (D). This is for a contract that lasts until the end of this year (and hopefully will be renewed.) The facilities where our services may be needed are spread all over the place. Most fall into D airspace (Boeing Field), while the other, largest facility is the SeaTac airport itself (B). Since we're talking about a very wide area covering two airports, I am wondering if I can even apply for a single authorization? The client is the same.
  8. Hi, I need help with something. I am getting conflicting information about whether or not I am able to fly a drone in a certain area (I am Part 107 certified.) When I look at the sectional charts and FAA UAS Data map it appears that I cannot fly here, which has been my understanding all along. But when I look at the AirMap (with Part 107 selected) and Kittyhawk, it says I’m good to go. I am attaching screenshots from all of them. The area in question is circled in all 3 screenshots. Thanks!
  9. Now apparently there will be airspace "vendors" to grant authorizations. Whether or not you will have to pay to play has yet to be announced.... https://skyward.io/skyward-is-an-faa-approved-laanc-airspace-vendor/?mkt_tok=eyJpIjoiTVdabFlqTXhOV1ExWTJVNSIsInQiOiJzSW9KbEtoNnJCWFZOMGpxalo2XC91ekoyYjFQc2hzS0hiZ3FZajdadUpHTnI1Z3Z4T29vcTlcL29ocWRaM0pRVThcL0pRcDQ1NFdYWGRmY2hGaWVVb0ZpQ0gyUzd2VGJGZXRLSndBZ1BrNXh2SmlqTkFPXC9DK01IWkpmZTRJeTF0SlEifQ%3D%3D The trial group of participating airports for 2017 are as follows: https://www.faa.gov/uas/programs_partnerships/uas_data_exchange/airport
  10. Hello! This is my first time Posting on here. I just had a question relating to flying within 5 miles of an airport. My question is if this applies to ALL airports, big and small, or just the bigger airport. I live in Logan, UT and the entire valley is covered by class E airspace starting at 700 FT. AGL. Obviously this means if I am within the allowed 400 ft. then i shouldn't have any issues. The airport is shown within this controlled airspace area but does not have any addition boundaries (its a small local airport). Does the 5 mile rule still apply here? The reason I ask is because I get lo
  11. Aloha, Living on an island has it's obvious pros, but there are definitely cons, such as a class C airport that covers a huge percentage of residential area...aka places I need to access for aerial real estate media. After requesting authorizations for the individual sections of housing areas spread about the airspace, today I received a complete blanket authorization for the whole grid! I guess they just got tired of seeing my applications and put 2&2 together. Lol Big Mahalo to the FAA!
