I live in a small town, but we have a little public untowered airfield which happens to be within 5 miles of where I like to fly around here. Haven't flown for 3 years, but will be starting again....under the new regulations. I researched the specific locations and gathered data (coordinates, elevation, distance from airport, etc). The airport isn't always "manned" operationally. But, I called today and reached someone! Told the gentleman I wanted to notify them of upcoming flights. Gave him the dates, times, coordinates, max altitude and advised him of nearby land features and utility poles that were higher than I would be flying. (Like, duh, no pilot will be anywhere near the elevation I'll be flying). He and I both agreed that we are all getting used to the new regulations. At this point, they advise their local pilots but do not issue a NOTAM. By being prepared with info, I can now simply call and leave a message on their answering machine even when there is no one there. This will be really helpful for me in the future.
