    I live in a very rural area of Virinia and on the DJI app it shows 3 small airports within 5 miles. These are single airplane private airports that are at individual homes or farms. Will my P3P take off from my house or will it be grounded. I went out to the one closest to me today but no one was there to ask any questions.
    I'm have several other drones which I've been flying for several yrs here with no problems

    I have a grass strip and 2 helipads within 5 miles of my house. Never had an issue. I have the latest software and no issues. On the b4ufly app it gives an alert and states i need to contact the tower prior- but no tower. I just keep an eye and ear out for any flight traffic so i can stay clear. The dji app doesn't even acknowledge im within the 5 mile zone.

    So i say you are good to go. Airnav.com will give you all the info about the airports so you can contact them prior to flight.
