The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has updated its Plan of Activity processing for aerial activity to reflect the following:
Operators utilizing aircraft for aerobatic maneuvers below the minimum 1,500 feet above the surface or in proximity to persons or airspace are required to have a Certificate of Waiver and submit a Plan of Activity (POA) to the local Flights Standard District Office (FSDO). Please be advised, helicopter/aircraft below 500 feet will still require a POA. Minimum altitudes for aircrafts are specified in the Federal Aviation Regulations (FAR)UAS operators must submit a POA to the FSDO with geographic responsibility every time a UAS is operated for filming purposes. The filing of a Notice to Airmen (NOTAM) is not equivalent to FSDO notification.
