I've seen a couple mentions of this happening on the forums; so I am wondering if we can get a clearer picture of what may be going on. Who here has been denied clearance to fly when contacting an airport because you were within the 5 mile radius? If you were; where was the airport located? (It would be interesting to see if different people are getting different results from the same airports). Now I know that we are only supposed to notify and not ask for permission; but several people have been told they simply can't fly. It's those folks I like to hear from.
