    Im trying to file my POA online on lockheed martins 1800wxbrief page and i can't get the long and lat correct easily....

    heres my process... i grab a address from google copy and paste the long and latitude but it fails every time. i think i need to get a single central point and do not know how to do that... anyone ? I'm doing a radius map.

    Decimal v DMS (Degrees, Minutes, Second) format.

    Likely the website doesn't accept decimal coordinates.

    You have to enter the location like this: 324428N1115845W
    The system does not accept decimal entries. You can convert here: GPS Latitude and Longitude Converter

    POA = Plan pf Activities as per 333 exemption for Closed set Filming is required as well as the Notam.

    1. The operator must have a motion picture and television operations manual (MPTOM) as documented in this grant of exemption.

    2. At least 3 days before aerial filming, the operator of the UAS affected by this exemption must submit a written Plan of Activities to the local Flight Standards District Office (FSDO) with jurisdiction over the area of proposed filming. The 3-day notification may be waived with the concurrence of the FSDO. The plan of activities must include at least the following:

    POA is a document. It only needs to go to the FSDO. If it's LAX, it'll be Jim or Jim (there's two of them). Takes minimum 3 working days. NOTAM you post 72 to 24 hours before flying either online or by calling. Here's an example NOTAM (not mine):

    NOTAM UAS Operating Area RAL_05/028
    DEFINED AS 1NM RADIUS OF RAL034010 (4 NM W SBD)
    SFC-200FT AGL DLY 1300-2300 1605121300-1605132300.
