Drone

There are some substantial changes to the airspace around San Francisco.

Most of these changes are to airspace above 400’, but the most significant change for drone operators is that the Class B volume around SFO changed shape. This is particularly important as Class B affects both Part 107 and recreational (Part 101) drone pilots. The good news is that the volume actually got smaller, but as most of the reduction sits over the Golden Gate National Recreation Area National Park, you might not actually be able to make use of the 300 billion cubic feet that just got handed back to you!
