Greetings fellow pilots, first post here. I usually just read what Alan sends out and move on. Today's email included some talk about how it's impossible to fly drones in national parks. I am here to tell you that this is untrue. With proper permitting you CAN not only fly, but record video and photos too. I received permitting and commissioned flights for 23 campgrounds within the Coconino National Forest in Arizona during the fall of 2017, producing video and photographs for the campground websites. Just call the permitting contact for the National Forest and request a permit application. You will need to provide detailed flight plans, proof of insurance that includes the United States of America as "additionally insured", and a reason for flying/ filming that convinces the ranger in charge that the permit is worthy of being issued.
