“music” Hey RemotePilot101, Jason here We’ve known for a long time that you shouldn’t just directly call up an air traffic control tower and ask for permission to enter or fly into their airspace. There is a system for that. This is why the LANCE System was created This is why we have authorizations and even waivers for long term airspace authorizations. So, the FAA recently had this, we’ll call it, secret memo surface and it essentially said just that, but it was talking about in reference to recreational pilots. Let me show you that memo here and I’ll read it to you real quick. I’m skipping down to paragraph 3 Air traffic facilities should not authorize or approve any recreational flight. The purpose of this implementation plan is to diminish the need for calls to towers from any recreational operator requesting to fly in controlled airspace. The authorization restrictions for recreational UAS operators will be the National Authorization for fixed sites and controlled airspace as detailed below and it goes through to detail where we can actually fly, model fields, everything else in the systems we can go through. This is talking about recreational pilots. We know we go through LANCE or some sort of authorization system The problem that was happening was all these Rec pilots we’ll call them were wanting to operate in this little Class Delta airspace and picked up the phone and call the tower and the tower operators, the air traffic controllers, were complaining they were spending more time on the phone talking to Drone pilots then they were looking at the Radar or looking outside for manned airplanes as well, which is what they were paid to do. They’re really paid to control all the airspace so they have to balance all those plates is what they’re really doing. Where they want to focus though with the Part 107 operators, their authorizations, if they even need to speak to them at all. Usually you don’t, so recreation pilots, there’s this memo, I imagine the FAA is going to announce it soon, this came out on May the 11th, it was leaked. We don’t know when this will become law or how this will become law, but it’s something I want you watching for. Most of you watching us are Part 107 commercial operators but I know that you have some friends who fly recreationally who might be calling tower. Let them know that, hey you’re not going to get away with that much longer, there’s other ways to get through this. There’s going to be a link to this “secret” memo we’ll call it beneath this video as well if you want to read it in it’s entirety. I know you’ll have some questions about this just like last week when we dissected ADSB and everything else, so please leave myself and this great team here at RemotePilot101.com a comment on YouTube, on Facebook and you know you will get a response from us and we can’t wait to read you comments. We’ll see ya.
