Already a NOTAM - Do I still notify?


Recommended Posts

If there is an existing NOTAM over the area I routinely fly, are notifications still required?  For example, on SkyVector I see the NOTAM attached and normally would contact Rockwall Airport, but seems redundant.  Not that I expect the government to be effficient, but...

I'm not sure what the question is here.  First of all, as I see it, you are operating below class B airspace and you are in Class G at and below 400 AGL.  You are not required to notify anyone if you are a Part 107 certificate holder. Who issued the NOTAM ? Why would you contact Rockwall? Maybe I missed something.

If you are asking if you can fly under someone else's NOTAM, then the answer is no. A NOTAM is tied to an individual who is the responsible party for that flight(s).

You'll be operating under DFW's Class B (4k-10k feet) so you are in Class G unless you ignore the regs and make it up to 700 ft AGL which puts you in Class E. You 'can' notify the owner listed in SkyVector of F46 that you are going to be flying in the area as a courtesy. Other than that you really do not need to notify anyone else. Just be extra vigilant and watch out for other UAS's.

According to the FAA Facilities map, you are good to 400ft AGL as long as you don't stray toward the south end of Ray Hubbard.
