    Hello pilots,

    I have a problem that would change a lot about where Im allowed to fly.

    So basically I live about 3/5km (2/3 miles) away from Schiphol (Amsterdam airport) and on websites such as these 2 (examples):
    1. Drone Wetgeving en Regelgeving 2016 in Nederland
    2. Wet- en regelgeving rond drone-gebruik in Nederland

    it says I would not be allowed to fly a drone at all. But when I go onto the website of DJI themselves it says I am in a ."Height restriction zone" (A screenshot Screenshot).

    I have tried contacting DJI Live chat support about this but they were a little bit vague. Because the first person I got in touch with said that I can trust the DJI map and that the other maps are for actual unauthorized aircrafts, but then the second person (I was mysteriously cut off which is why I had to restart a new chat) told me something else. Screenshots below in order, the first chat is not 100% screenshotted but I basically ask him about the map situation.

    First chat:
    1. Screenshot
    2. Screenshot
    Second chat:
    3. Screenshot
    4. Screenshot

    And yes I have tried to send an email that they gave me but this seems to be down or non-existent.

    I hope this is enough information, if not please let me know and I will provide what's needed.

    Thank you in advance.

    DJI cannot be held responsible for every regulation and law through out the world that pertains to flying drones and where they can be flown and what altitude they can be flown. It is ultimately your responsibility to know where you can and can't fly your drone. I would suggests looking up the regs in NL.

    So, I just shouldn't trust anything the DJI NFZ map says? Because the difference between what DJI says on their map and other websites say is about 10km.

    I'm sure governments will publish GPS boundaries for commercial companies such as DJI to abide by if they wish to be certified for flights within their countries.

    I would contact the aviation authority for the area in question.
