    Wow thats the only map i ever seen that has a place near me that I just happen to know is a no flyzone for airplanes causes its a restricted sensitive military area and not een in dis way points app as restricted. But i also notice the circle on that map for the air port a few towns over is way bigger then the actual area that is in the zone. But it makes me feel really boxed in.

    I think that map is way more restrictive than necessary

    Totally inaccurate, there seems to be big no fly zones for airports that are not even really in use. Who is auditing this?

    A 5 mile radius?

    The airport closest to me is not marked on the map, even though the runways are clearly shown on the map.

    An arbitrary 5 mile radius around EVERY airport without regard to altitude or local fly-zones - I think I'll go ahead and call BS on that map. I love how Mc Minnville Airport in Oregon is similarly "restricted". Somebody forgot to tell them one of the biggest dedicated R/C parks in the state of Oregon in smack dab in the middle of it behind the Aviation Museum.
