    Hi,

    I am looking for some information on how to get an airport removed from the NFZ list in my area.

    I work at the airport and have been given permission by ATC to fly up and down the runway to take video of the terminal building and other areas, however when I fly towards the airport the NFZ comes up and tells me that I am entering a restricted area.

    I am not even sure if it Is even possible to get it removed from my software.

    Any help much appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Darren.

    Contact DJI directly, or use their android Beta version that has GEO unlocking. Airport areas can be unlocked only those two ways.

    Is it not true that the blocking software in a Phantom won't work when you fly in ATTI, so that, with permission of the tower, you can fly in airport space?

    It is not true - just as RTH is not disabled in ATTI. Switching to ATTI would not allow me to fly to the White House lawn either.
