Airspace Investigation and Controlled Airspaces
Before beginning your aerial photography project, our drone pilots need to know if we are able to legally fly in the desired location. This is because not all airspaces are legally available for commercial drone use. If the air above the location is controlled airspace, commercial drone pilots will not be able to fly without authorization.
What are controlled airspaces? Well, there are many different types of airspaces and our drone pilots know all about them. Here is a list of controlled vs. uncontrolled airspaces:
- Class B- controlled airspace
- Class C- controlled airspace
- Class D- controlled airspace
- Class E- controlled airspace
- Class G- uncontrolled airspace
If the area over where you wish to be photographed is in one of class B, C, D, E or any other type of restricted area like military operating areas, our drone pilots need authorization before flying. But if the flight can take place in class G airspace, we are free to fly.
