UAS Facility Maps

Starting tomorrow, the FAA will have UAS Facility Maps online which are to referenced when requesting waivers to fly in other than Class G airspace near airports.  The maps will be available starting tomorrow here.

This is explained here.

By referring to the facility maps when completing airspace authorization applications, remote pilots will be able to tailor their requests to align with locations and altitudes that the maps indicate are likely to be approved for small UAS operations. This will help simplify the process and increase the likelihood that the FAA will approve your requests.

The maps will be informational only. They will not automatically authorize flights. Remote pilots must still submit online airspace authorization applications here. The maps do not guarantee approval for requests within the guidelines indicated by the maps.
