    I am beginning to see more NOTAMS from the nearby airports as more and more UAV operators advise the Tower of their intentions. I saw three on our local airport's NOTAMs just today. One was a notice advising UAV ops near a Hospital Helipad and the balance were specific to the airport.

    Anyone else seeing acceptance/cooperation of drone ops per ATC's posting of UAV flights, coordinates, heights and radius on NOTAM?

    I go to the NavCanada website or type in the nearest to me airport ICAO id and NOTAM.

    For you likely BWI NOTAM for a major or go to FAA web and check NOTAMs in the area to see notices near the airport you query.

    Commercial operators must file NOTAMS when they fly. As a hobby operator you do have the capability of filing a UOA (UAS Operating Area) report that pilots may see when they receive their briefing. They are not official NOTAMS, but i think it helps our hobby to provide this information. I file each time I fly on 1800wxbrief.com

    That is odd, usually it would be listed as a Lat./Long.

    Actually, this is a more common location format in aviation. It is the Radial Distance. The first 3 letters is the ID of the location (in this case the Honolulu VORTAC), the next 3 digits are the radial or compass heading, and the last 3 is the distance.

    So HNL341025 means .25 miles NNW (341 degrees) from the HNL navigation beacon.
