Thanks Alan. You are exactly right - this can be a very confusing aspect of US Airspace and many people don't always understand it especially when it comes to flying in G space, then moving into E space with the floor being at 700'. As long as you stay at 400' in an E airspace where the floor is at 700' you should be ok. Right?

Yes, assuming there aren't other airspace considerations in that area :)

I wonder if it would be possible to get a "Blanket" waiver for airspace that could cover possible flights. I've been doing real estate photos and a large portion of homes will fall within class D airspace.  The request form says you can choose the time of the first flight and last if multiple flights will take place.  It'd be great if we could request say a 3 month period where we could potentially fly.

I spoke with an FAA representative about that very issue and he said that right now they are working on a certain ceiling for anyone wanting to fly no matter the airspace (there will still be SOME restrictions).  You would have to request a waiver but if you agree to stay under 100' AGL (or whatever ceiling they determine) then the waiver is automatically granted for the time period you request.

He said that is what is in the works right now.
