    There is talk about having to complete a written test every two years -- but, nothing involving the TSA.

    Getting vetted by the TSA is not exactly a big deal. I've done it for various travel programs (i.e., PreCheck and then Global Entry).

    Hello All,
    I don’t normally post on sights but… today I must!

    I bought my Phantom in Jan of this year 2015. OMG do I love it! I am just on the edge of retirement so I’m old… ish.
    I like what DJI has done with the No Fly Zones but I need more info.

    I would like to know were exactly, are the regulations referring to the Class C and B Airspace rules that indicate the gradual increase in operating altitude as DJI puts out.
    I know DJI is a worldwide phenomenon and that seems to be the best word for it but I live in the USA so I’m mostly concerned with following the FAA rules.

    I have read most of Section 91 and understand some of it. I’ve seen nothing that mentions the sliding or graduated height limitations.
    (You know: 1.5 mile-35ft. and 5 miles-400ft.) I live in the Orlando Fl. area and I am also troubled by the omission of the Orlando Sanford Airport on the No Fly Zone Map.

    I am very much aware of the FAA’s announcement yesterday (Feb 15 2015).
    I wish to know the law as it reads and not just count on DJI… though I like what they are trying to do.
    If someone could show me the way, I would be in your debt.

    Thx, Dan DaMan
