Restricted Air Space and Drones Part 1

I was recently asked by a law firm to do drone video and photography in South Atlanta. After gathering as much information as I could from the client, I also checked the location on the flight charts to see if there were any restrictions in the area.

I discovered the shoot would indeed be in restricted airspace (Class B) and that not only would I need a waiver, but I was also restricted to a 200’ ceiling because of the proximity to the Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta International Airport.

After reviewing the restrictions with our client, it was determined that the benefits of the flight would outweigh any concern about the limitations or logistics.

Hiring a licensed UAV pilot is critically important, as they are trained to check for details to ensure you’re not breaking the law. The flight and the project were a success and we plan on doing more projects together in the future.
