    I have a question. Hypothetically if I were to gain permission from the proper authorities at an Indian Reservation such as the tribal police/council would FAA rules still apply? The idea would be to fly above the 400ft FAA restriction. The Indian Reservation I have in mind is not near any airport/helipad and is not an active area for any kind of flight operations.


    Thanks! And sorry if this is a dumb question or has been answered before. I attempted to search for similiar posts and only found one referencing that an individual should first contact the proper authorities before attempting such a flight which in my mind is a given.

    Thanks again,

    Drone Monkey.

    I would guess that the FAA rules the air regardless of what is on the ground below.
