    These licensed pilots would probably be the first to whine about anyone else flying a drone near the Lompoc airport.

    I wrote a comment asking if they had FAA approval for this flight. Probably get my as handed to me but what the heck it could be fun.

    And yes I am a licensed pilot and would not do this without approval.

    I am a "licensed " pilot too and NO we would not be mad. You don't have to ask the FAA either, just the Airport Manager and coordinate the flying. It's all about safety, not restrictions.
