    Does anyone have a good app or database of no fly zones that includes lesser known ones? For example in central California most of the coastline is part of a marine sanctuary (like 50 miles) and I would not have even known about their rules for flying if I hadn't gone directly to their website and found out that you're not supposed to fly under 1000 feet there due to the potential disturbance of wildlife.

    Hover app. I've got it on my iPhone. It's got National Parks/monuments/NRs and I see a lot of red areas along the CA coast. It allows you to click on the area for a bit more info.

    And stay out of Area 51. They've got a dreadful green deathray that'll fry your bird like cheap cheese in a greasy-hot cast-iron pan.

    Is that area specifically in regards to planes though since they are so loud? UAV are unlikely to keep a minimum altitude of 1,000ft. Wonder if they need to update clarify.

    Nothing on B4Ufly for me, but maybe it's broken because that is too far away? They need to consolidate and make one definitive app/map that actually WORKS for us to take their NFZ's seriously.

    Hover shows red area along SF but not near Santa Cruz. B4ufly nothing.

    I found this one called drone buddy. Very similar to hover, but the map seams much cleaner. If you enable national parks and military bases its pretty nice. Only difference from hover app I can see it drone buddy doesn't show allot of the tiny municipal airports that may have little to no traffic on any given day

    I use Hover. Its good for showing you how many, many, many NFZ's there are. If you zoom it out so you can see the whole US you wonder where we can fly.

    That's kind of a crappy way to put it, " capacity for disturbing".

    I would ignore that letter completely. I'm finding lots of haters. I saw several videos on you tube about a local beach and park in my area. So I call them up yesterday and they tell me no not to fly there. Yet I see A Zillow flights there online. 2 miles out in the ocean. What the hell. Can't be a better place not to disturb anyone or anything. So I'm gonna do it anyway. And see the outcome. Sick of everyone wanting to be a bureaucrat.

    I understand it to a point. I would feel shitty running into one of the 45 California condors left in the world. But that's a big area.
