In most cases, yes. The FAA requires that, near certain airports and other airspace, advance approval from the controlling facility be obtained. I can do this in most cases on the spot, although in some cases more time may be needed. By knowing your location, I can determine what timing will be required.

Drone manufacturers also impose their own GPS-based limitations on where their drones can fly. These locations aren’t generally more strict than FAA regulations, likely trying to protect themselves from liability concerns. I can obtain waivers to these restrictions as well, usually on the spot although I generally do this in advance to simplify things on flight day.

I take care of all these considerations for you, as well as weather, and local regulatory concerns, so you don’t have to, but I’ll keep you informed of any limitations these things might impose on getting your images.
