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?
At other conferences I’ve attended in different industries, training for certifications are provided during the weekend before the actual conference. I’m just curious to know if at any UAV/S conferences, there is pilot training over a long weekend, or during the conference, that would lead to certification. Any other suggestions for a condensed and focused course (not internet based) that would lead to a UAV pilots license is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
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.
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!
