I'm sure everyone is aware of this and i can't seem to find a specific thread about the ongoing nightmare of the " yellow zones" throughout Los Angeles ( entire SoCal ). Most of the places I want to fly have about 2-5 listed names to call for permission. I live in San Fernando valley and want to fly in a secluded area far away from residential neighborhoods ( pretty much mountain /flat, slight terrain area). Most of the names listed are 1 school probably 4 miles away and 3 heliport areas.... do we really have to call all listed names to ask for permission? Obviously near airport towers...but schools and heliport? The place of interest is Victory Trailhead in West Hills, CA if anyone here is familiar. I've only been flying my Air at the Apollo airfield at lake Balboa which I hear is legal to do..even though its next to a airport . Thanks everyone !
