    Does the FAA and DJI nfz's parallel each other? I can't find the dji nfz's anywhere to compare? I can see the beforeufly Gara zones which seem to cover all of Southern California.

    No, they are not always consistent. DJI has different classifications which makes things very confusing. Both DJI and FAA have errors in them.

    GEO will add a whole additional layer of DJI's own zones and criteria. Many people will assume if it's OK with GEO, it's OK with FAA but there's no guarantee that this will be true.
