Hello to anyone who opens posts by new members! I'm excited to get involved in this online community and read and learn as much as I can! There seems to be an endless fountain of information to learn on this technology and FAA regulations, and quite frankly its a bit overwhelming. I'm hoping this forum helps me collect information to organize the most relevant aspects of the industry. I plan on using my DJI Mavic Air and Parrot Bebop 2 for Real Estate, and in the future hopefully creating media content for marketing other company's products and services. Before I drone on and lose any of you I'll finish this post by asking a few questions that hopefully some of y'all might have insight on. 1) What subjects do people find most difficult to grasp when it comes to flying quad-copters commercially? (Laws, Contracts, Notams, sectional charts, etc.) 2) Where do y'all recommend looking for contracts, contract structure? 3) What are the best free apps for information, and where do y'all find the best news on industry changes? Thanks to anyone who takes the time to respond! This is my favorite hobby, and I look forward to apply my skills in a commercial setting!
Good Morning Everyone, I really hope that my first post isn't going to put me on a moderator watch list, but I'm really interested in your answers. With the FAA still being super slow on reviewing airspace authorizations I know that a small subset of pilots are flying without the proper authorization. Hypothetically, do these pilots still contact the local ATC and let them know about planned flights even without the authorization in place? It seems like the logical and safe thing to do.
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!
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. It seems to me that this process of submitting with the FAA and waiting for them to give ATC approval to give me approval is inefficient and a hassle. Has anyone submitted an airspace authorization form to the FAA? What was the turn around time? I really hope it's not 90 days.
