    I'm looking to do a flight within 5 miles of an airport(Reno Tahoe), but I can't find a phone number for the control tower anywhere! Any idea as to where I would find this?

    Call and inform them that you need to contact the tower in order to obtain permission to fly a drone.

    It's not always so easy. I was trying to find the number online for LaGuardia Airport. Only an old number was listed. Finally I called customer service and ask for it. The lady told me she's not supposed to give that number. I told her why I wanted and she told me to hold on. Came back and gave me the number.
