Found a cool resource in the form of a blog post that's applicable (IMHO) to all drone pilots. Its at How To Request FAA Airspace Authorization | Drone Pilot Ground School

Here's an excerpt I'm definitely going to check out... free sectionals.

"Companies like VFRMap and SkyVector offer free, digitized Sectional Charts, allowing you to zoom in and out and click into airports to get more detailed information. It’s a great way to quickly scan the major airspace considerations of a particular latitude / longitude.

There’s also AirMap, another free tool which I like, because you can plug in an actual address. I’ve used Skyward as well, but that’s more of a flight logging and operations management tool. Same with Flyte and Kittyhawk, both of which use AirMap’s raw data to power their own airspace research tools within their greater flight operations management platforms."

Curious, anyone have experience with any of these/have a recommendation? VFR Map is pretty simple, just wish it had a more granular view (i.e. more zoom).

Thanks, The New Guy
