Reply To: Drone Zeroing In Over Genesee Hill Area




West Seattle is in multiple areas of airspace restrictions, especially Boeing Field, less than 5 miles away. We are literally in their traffic pattern. Within this area, there is a significant amount of low level traffic in addition to air ambulance flights into Harborview Trauma Center’s helipad. It’s not just a orivacy issue. It’s a serious safety issue.

Per the FAA:
For flight near airports in controlled airspace, drone operators must receive an airspace authorization prior to operation. Airspace authorizations come with altitude limitations and may include other operational provisions. Controlled airspace and other flying restrictions can be found on our B4UFLY app.

For a regulatory information, you can start here…

Thanks for your concern.
