I'm doing a shoot tomorrow for a construction company and its smack dab in the middle of two small airports. I already notified the airports and got approval.Small private airports.... probably not. But even small airports would prefer UAVs keep their distance, I would think.
That's a bummer... Might have to shut the GPS off... Sigh.None of the small airports near me generate a NFZ with my H. Those consist of one uncontrolled public airport, three private fields, and three helipads, two for hospitals and one for civil PD.
You are right, I live in Switzerland. Yuneec CS in Germany sent me this:The terminology used to describe an airport suggests you are not in the U.S. Yuneec may have set things up differently for your area. Give Yuneec a call or e-mail and see what they have to say. I'm curious, what happens if GPS is disabled?
More "friendly" comments from the German support:You are right, I live in Switzerland. Yuneec CS in Germany sent me this:
Dear Mr Bogstad,
thank you for your email, a good map for the NFZ you will find here : https://www.openaip.net/ .
We are sorry to say but we are not able to switch them NFZ off.
Mit freundlichen Grüßen / Best Regards

I have never head of such a thing. And my understanding is threre is no restriction of any type. It is not a modified NFZ it is disabled.Is the NFZ completely disabled, or are you limited to 30 feet within 5 miles of an airport?
