Can I launch here? you ask. Probably, but
there are some things you must know.
In the U.S. our freedom is inspiring; we can
fly just about anywhere with few restrictions but, like all freedoms,
that privilege carries great responsibility. Knowing the airspace and
adhering to its restrictions is the only we collectively will keep
enjoying our freedom.
Those who doubt the need to protect our
freedom need only look to our flying friends in the Washington D.C.
area. They can no longer fly in their home area due to security
restrictions. Regardless of what anyone thinks about those restrictions,
they are a reality to many who now must travel a long way to fly. We owe
it to the continuance of our minimally regulated status to learn and
respect the airspace we fly in!
Another useful resource is the
section. It provides a practical guide to the airspace issues
surrounding numerous popular PPG locations.
