Hi all, I'm still in learning phase and trying to make sure I don't break any FAA rules. I've downloaded the B4UFly app in an effort to make sure I'm not flying anywhere I'm not supposed to. Recently I was in Pensacola, FL and am now near Andalusia, AL and in both places I've run into large swaths of "Special Use Airspace" A-292 (Pensacola) and A-211 (Dothan, AL) that according to the app means I CANNOT fly my drone. I have attached pictures. On the "SkyVector" website these seem to correlate with Caution/Alert areas where there is a high volume of Rotary and Fixed wing training. To me this seems more like an MOA? Is there a way to determine when they end, or if these restrictions are permanent?
Hey all, I decided to download the B4UFLY app from the FAA. When I checked a certain area I wanted to fly my UAS, the app indicated that there was a heliport 4.55 miles from my location and that I needed to let the airport manger know I would be flying my UAS near the heliport. I was skeptical so I checked my FlyQEFB app that I use for manned flight. The updated aeronautical chart did NOT indicate any heliport whatsoever in the area that the B4UFLY app indicated. I also checked an outdated paper copy of the aeronautical chart in my area and no heliport. Do I fly based on the information I found out? Thoughts? Thanks, Chris
