Drones – Understanding the New Airport UAS Facility Maps

New Airport UAS Facility Maps provide useful information for commercial UAS pilots.  

The FAA held a seminar to discuss the newly released Airport UAS Facility Maps.  The seminar was presented by UAS leader, Jeff Riolo.  Jeff Riolo is with Empower UAV.   He is very knowledgeable in current FAA information, rules and regulations.   These maps provide valuable information for a commercial UAS pilot.  Maximum altitudes,  Airport Date and Temporary Flight Restrictions and much more..

There are various ways to get to the Airport UAS Facility Maps … this link works best.  This link will allow the full use of the information available.

The maps are used to provide information regarding maximum altitude, airport data and temporary flight restrictions.   They are an aid used by FAA Part 107 processors to help with the airspace authorization process.  The FAA released the first of several facility maps April 27, 2017.  Additional maps will be published every 56 days through the end of the year.  If you would like to see the chart of release dates. 56-day aeronautical chart production schedule.

Even though the maps show the areas and altitudes near airports, commercial drone pilots will still need to file for an authorization through the FAA portal.   These maps will help with authorization process.  They are to be used for planning and information only.

Airport UAS Facility Map Grid

As of the first release only Class E airports are shown as grid.   It is assumed with each release in the future additional airport classifications will be added.  There are many features of the Airport UAS Facility Map, grids, charts, visual aids and data.  All very useful.

The grid shows maximum altitude around an airport.

By selecting a specific area, valuable detailed information can be obtained.

Airport UAS Facility Map Layer List

Airport UAS Facility Map Layer List

Layers can be added.

11 visual layers can be selected depicting UAS flight restrictions, UAS Facility map data, and Airspace Class.   A simple “click” and you can see the visual of what type of information you need.     UAS Flight Restrictions (shown in red) apply to all UAS flight operations, and remain in effect 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  There may be additional temporary flight restrictions that prohibit UAS and manned flight in effect in your area. See Temporary Flight Restrictions for additional information on flight restrictions that may be in effect in your area before operating your UAS.

 

  • UAS Flight Restrictions
  • UAS Facility Map Data
  • Special Use Airspace
  • Class B, C, D Airspace
  • Class E2 -E6 Airspace

The maps are user friendly.   They allow a user search for a specific airport and to zoom in or out.  The Airport UAS Facility Maps easily show flight restrictions and minimum altitudes.   Reminder…. this is not where you file for authorizations.  You must file for Airspace Authorizations through the FAA online line portal.

The FAA offers seminars and a WINGS pilot proficiency program for further education and safety.     Jeff Riolo did an excellent job discussing the details and the features available with the Airport UAS Facility Maps .   Take a look and see the benefits it can offer you as a commercial UAS pilot.

Real Estate

Drone footage is a perfect way for potential buyers to see properties for sale.

The aerial view gives them a amazing visual vantage point.  It shows a new perspective of the home or property.  And it also shows current location and surrounding area.

Very happy to be able to provide Kenneth Feder some of the aerial footage for the publication.   Check out page 193 for a photo of the human-like image that is 171 feet tall.   Kenneth L. Feder is a Professor of Anthropology at Connecticut State University.   We met up in Blythe California.   I was filming the Intaglios with the drone and he was preparing for his book “Ancient America”  and “Frauds, Myths and Mysteries”.

I am looking forward to working with Kenneth in the future.   There is so much potential for drone footage for images that are best seen from a distance in the air.

Lake Elsinore La Laguna Resort

Lake Elsinore Resort construction is underway and this is my office for the morning.

I’ve been working on a project with the Lake Elsinore Chamber.  We are gathering photo’s for a time-lapse of the progress of the La Laguna Resort.

The changes are moving along very fast.    This morning photo of the construction also has a  beautiful sunrise.

On The Go Video.biz was there for the grand opening of the Rosetta Canyon Community Sports Park in Lake Elsinore.

My drone photo is on the cover of the Lake Elsinore Chamber Magazine.  It is a beautiful park with five tournament fields.  This park was designed to standards that will attract regional and national tournaments.  Lake Elsinore is growing in such positive ways.   Take a look at the video and see for yourself.

 

 

Ancient America

Ancient America: Fifty Archaeological Sites to See for Yourself   My aerial photographs have been published in the newly released book “Ancient America” by Kenneth L Feder.

I have always said that the s’UAS offers a new perspective for photographs.  The photos of the intaglios are the perfect example.   I suggest you pick up a copy of Ancient America from Amazon.com.    I think Kenneth L. Feder did a great job detailing America’s ancient past and he includes helpful bullet points for traveling to the areas.      The aerial shots and information about the Blythe Intaglios can be found on pages 146 – 150.

It nice meeting up with Kenneth Feder and I am glad to be a part of the publication.   I’m looking forward to more of his books and working together in the future.

STEM / STEAM …. A brighter future.

First…   What is it?  STEM is Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.   STEAM add “ART”.   I believe that art is an important part to the equation and drones are the perfect tool for the job.

The knowledge and enthusiasm that the students show towards new technology is amazing!   To start the program the students are handed a box of parts.   They build the drone, computer program the RC communication, make sure it can fly, and use Tinkercad to build replacement parts.Amazon
