    Came across this while conducting a preflight briefing on Pilot Web:
    www. 1800wxbrief. com (Take the spaces out. Wouldn't let me post the link directly)

    There's a place that UAS pilots can create a flight plan for their proposed flight. This is not the same as requesting a NOTAM. Rather, it is more like a manned aircraft pilot filing a VFR flight plan. Here's the direct link:

    Here's the youtube training video:


    IMHO, this is a step closer to increasing flight safety while legitimizing the use of UAS within the NAS.

    Now, if we can just keep little Billy-Bob from flying the drone his daddy bought him from Best Buy within wildland fire TFR's and risking the safety of everyone concerned....

    My NOTAM that I have for tomorrow shows up on the UAS operating map. I like the fact that it remembers your info in case you fly the same place multiple times as does the Notam system.
