Default Drone Flying in Controlled Airspace

With my new Mavic Air 2 comes a whole new learning curve for me to climb regarding what I can, and cannot do within the FAA rules. Since I have some controlled airspace in my local area, I have been examining what is required if I want to do some aerial photography closer to those controlled areas. (I am also seriously considering FAA Part 107 certification).

Currently as an FAA Recreational flyer if I take off from, or fly into controlled airspace, near an airport for example. I will get a warning on my controller. I can then get Low Altitude Authorization for various sectors around the airport (400 ft., 200 ft. & 100 ft.). That is available as an automated clearance (LAANC) after submission of flight plan via the drone controller, you are sent a confirmation number via SMS. Then you can continue flying in the controlled area responsibly.

Here is what the controlled airspace around Paso Robles Municipal Airport (PRB) looks like with the various low altitude flight levels shown:

I saw a drone today. Flying 3ft above a river, following it along. Clearly out of eyesight of the flyer and you know, I didn't feel threatened at all. Preserve us from the anti-drone nanny-staters.


Possibly a fish and wildlife organization, counting anlers or some such.
