    Hi - new to the Spark and drones in general. I'm British, currently living in Germany and just about to head out to Nevada for a couple of years. Really impressed with the Spark so far - only had a couple of flights and still learning how to fly it before being able to think about the photos and videos I'm taking too much.

    Question for the hive mind - how much detail will I need to provide in the US when flying in proximity to other airspace users? I was careful on my one flight not in my back garden to be nowhere near anything, but I may not have that luxury in the US.

    Thanks!

    Welcome to Spark Pilots! :)

    What exactly do you mean by this? What kind of detail are you referring to?

    I'm not exactly sure... I'm guessing location and altitude at a minimum, but was wondering if I needed to provide any further information?

    Who exactly do you plan on providing that information to? Why is that person/company requesting you provide this information?

    Hypothetical example - say I want to fly at this location, with these two phone numbers from AirMap. What info do I need to tell them when I want to fly? PSX_20180513_190359.jpeg

    Ah, so, you want to fly within 5 miles of an airport. Check out this article for more details on notifying nearby airports before flying.
