ADU 01169: How to Fly at Night Without A Waiver

Today’s show is about flying at night without a waiver.

Our caller for today, Bob has called in with an extremely relevant question today. Bob’s question is about flying at night without a waiver. With daylight waiver to fly at night all set to become history, is there any benefit to applying for a Wide Area Authorization? Additionally, he is also wondering about the procedure to fly in controlled airspace near an airport that is not LAANC-enabled.

With the recent changes to Part 107, drone pilots shall soon be able to fly without a waiver. On today’s show, you will receive some latest information and expert tips so that you can legally fly at night without a waiver.

Part 107 pilots will also get some great value from the latter half of the show where Paul reveals how you can capture data in a zero grid area even when you don’t have the necessary permission to fly.

We also discuss if it is possible for pilots to get the necessary flight permissions and operate profitable drone businesses in cities like Las Vegas and New York. Thanks for the great question, Bob. Fly Safe!
