Getting waivers to fly in restricted airspace is a time consuming process. This article links to the FAA release of maps that will speed up this process.
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) plans to release the first set of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) facility maps on April 27. The maps will depict areas and altitudes near airports where UAS may operate safely. They will help drone operators improve the quality of their Part 107 airspace authorization requests, which will help the FAA process these requests more quickly.
