I'm the lead part 107 pilot for a Nevada state agency. I'm filling out the online FAA form for a CoA for this agency to operate under. The form includes a question to delineate the area of flight operations. Since my state agency could be tasked for flight missions almost anywhere in the state and most of the state is G airspace, rather than delineating some geographic areas we might fly in, I'd like to delineate the entire state, minus the airspaces over the air force bases in the south and parts of the ATC airspaces in Reno and Las Vegas. I'd like the community to comment on this. Does anyone know specifically what the FAA is expecting, and, possibly, what they will accept for this answer? Ken
Seasoned aviator, long time RC aircraft pilot, new to Commercial UAV ops. 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 bases? I also live within the "Mode C veil," for a class "B" airport, how do I overcome the lack of a "Mode C" Transponder? Any help would be appreciated I have a lot of work available, but need to operate fully and completely within the confines of legality. Thanks again, Shawn
