    I have an N-number for my P3P which I got a couple of months ago as a hedge against possibly going 333 down the road but also to be able to use the same 1800WXBRIEF service that aircraft pilots use; they have a special section for UAS flights now that adds them to the database so pilots know what's up. Question is, does that fulfill the requirement for notifying an airport if you're within five miles?

    (Yes, I know I could just call them and ask, but I'm lazy and was hoping someone knew already.)

    No. I don't think so. That might produce a NOTAM. IDK haven't used it yet. It's a quick call to give them a heads up.

    The last time I called them is when I did flight training. After I got my license I never called them. Always used flight following. :D

    No, it does not fulfill the requirement.
