Classifications of Class E Airspace | Drone Pilot Facts
Today, we have a fantastic question from Mark in Pittsburgh. Like many people, Mark is wondering about how to navigate the various levels of Class E airspace. We talk about how designations such as Class E2 and Class E5 affect airspace authorization and discuss the role that the airport’s hours play in determining which authorizations you need. Thanks for the question Mark. Hopefully we’ll see you in Pittsburgh at some point! Fly safe!
